We all have doh! moments, you are not the first to be here.

Two options:
1. Manually undo all the changes (no, didn't think you liked that one)
2. Drop template1 and recreate it using template0

The createdb command has a flag to let you base your new database on something 
other than template1. Actually, IIRC this is exactly why we have template0 - 
for those occasions where you want to regenerate template1.
