Oh, and I actually find this a thing that I needed a couple times before. Databases used as templates are occasionally useful. To fill their contents one usually wants to connect to them occasionally, but most of the time connections ought to not be allowed so creating a database with them as a template actually works. It's solvable via other means, but not conveniently. Greetings, Andres Freund
