Re: Postgres file locations

Guy R. Thomas:
   Three cases

     1) if the name entered is a valid user, then use that.

     2) if the name entered is not a valid user create that user

     3) If [enter] then create postgres.

   Does that seem right?

2) implies the need for further prompting.  Maybe there was a typo.
Maybe the person is trying to bail out (and not install postgres at
this point).

Also, think about how to let someone change their mind.  Ideally, the
database files should stay around for most circumstances, but there'll
have to be a way of stripping everything off and rebuilding it...  [Or
is this already covered?]
