create_template_postgis scripts should use #!/bin/bash -e as hashbang so that the script fails if any of the commands fails. This is useful for automation (like Travis CI installation of PostGIS).

After looking into it I'm not sure if it's such a good idea, because the script don't clean after itself in case of failure.
For example if a user doesn't have postgis installed, the first time the script run it will create the database template_postgis then fail to install the postgis extension in it. Then the user install postgis but the script will directly fail in subsequents runs since template_postgis will already exists. So this isn't really user friendly.

Thanks for looking. Considering that this script is not used any more with Postgis 2, and the minor effect it has, I suggest to "won't fix" the issue.
