How about splitting out the backend and the frontend? I can think of the
situation where ppl do want to use
psql/pg_dump/pg_dumpall/createuser/destroyuser/ createdb/destroydb, but
don't have any need for postgres/postmaster and all other file associated
with them....

Maybe a good idea to package pgaccess as well (see PostgreSQL web-pages)

Cool.... How do you plan to run/don't-run initdb and updates between 
incompatible versions which require a dump/restore?
