Well, I figure we would copy the database capability we have for

If you call oid2name with no args, you get:
	All databases:
	17219  = test
	1      = template1
	17218  = template0

If we specify just the database name we get:
	(2) aspg oid2name -d template1
	All tables from database "template1":
	17147  = sql_features
	17152  = sql_implementation_info
	17157  = sql_languages
	17162  = sql_packages
	17167  = sql_sizing
	17172  = sql_sizing_profiles

I assume we just need to add a tablespace display when run with no args,
and a -s option to display _with_ -d to display only objects in that
database.  We could go fancy and spin through all the databases and list
the datbase name and objects in that tablespace.

For dbsize, I assume we have to follow the symlinks.  We would have to
spin through all the tablespaces looking for directories with the
database oid.

Given the number of open items for 7.5, I am thinking of keeping this
for post-feature freeze.  Both are contrib.
