We use "CREATE DATABASE foo TEMPLATE foo_bk" to restore development
databases to a known snapshot (ex: prior to testing DB migrations).
Currently psql only autocompletes "foo_bk" if it's marked as a template
database. It's mildly inconvenient to have to type out the entire database
name (as they're not marked as templates).

The CREATE DATABASE command allows a super user to use any database as the
template, and a non-super user (with CREATEDB privilege) to use any
database of which it's the owner.

The attached patch updates the psql "CREATE DATABASE ... TEMPLATE <tab>"
completion to match what the command actually allows.
