The current code implements what I suggested in that note, viz:
default permissions for new databases are
        owner = all rights (ie, create schema and create temp)
        public = create temp right only
but template1 and template0 are set to
        owner (postgres user) = all rights
        public = no rights
by initdb.

Also, the "public" schema within template1 is empty but writable by
public.  This is annoying, but at least it's easy to fix if you
mess up --- you can DROP SCHEMA public CASCADE and then recreate
the schema.  (Or not, if you don't want to.)

                        regards, tom lane
