I just want to say I dislike this idea.

This is almost as bad as Magnus agreeing with JD (!), but I agree with
Peter :-). After years of typing the current names, changing them does
seem somewhat annoying. Worse yet, pg_* is just awkward to type.

While the change might be awkward, the names of these binaries really should be namespaced in some way. The current just too generic to be throwing into a bin/ directory in my opinion.

Of course I realize that I voted for the idea in the first place. I voted for it for consistency more than anything but as I think about it, it really is clunky and doesn't serve any real purpose.
