Why not just remove them all and change the docs to suggest using

psql -c "CREATE DATABASE foo"

Less code, no confusion because we have just one client tool - psql.

Several of them have the ability to connect to several databases, some
even do that in parallel.

vacuumdb being one that I've needed recently to do a number of DB's in a row.
