createdb, dropdb - also not clear they're about postgres, more likely to be used by mistake but not that bad. That said, do they add any *value* beyond what you can do with psql -c "CREATE DATABASE"? I don't really see one, so I'd suggest dropping these too.
The value they add is that they quote the database name and options correctly which makes them easier to use safely and reliably in shell scripts. And unless I am missing something obvious I do not think there is any easy way for a beginner to do this with just psql.
