When does a "Takeout Double" of 1 become Ineffective?

It seems to me that a general principle is that as fewer clubs are shown, a takeout definition is less effective. Is this true?

Assume that the opponents have opened 1. At what point would you choose something other than "takeout" to define your double? 

If 1 shows 4+clubs
If 1 shows 3+clubs
If 1 shows 2+clubs
If 1 shows 1+clubs
If 1 shows 0+clubs
I would always choose a takeout definition for the double, no matter what club length is shown
