We don't actually *have* one, but I believe it was agreed that that is
the right API to provide.  If a pooler has to remember to clear prepared
statements, GUCs, cursors, and who knows what else, it'll be perpetually
broken because there'll be something it omits.

There might be a use-case for DEALLOCATE ALL, but needs of poolers
aren't it.  I'd be inclined to vote against this unless someone can
point to a better use-case.
