Please find attached to this mail version 9 of the Extension Templates
patch with fixes for the review up to now.

Then what happens at pg_restore time? the CREATE EXTENSION in the backup
script will suddenly install the other extension's that happen to have
the same name? I think erroring out is the only safe way here.

It's all about pg_restore really, but it's easy to forget about that and
get started into other views of the world. I'll try to be better at not
following those tracks and just hammer my answers with "pg_restore" now.

Yes, you're right on spot here. So I've amended the patch to implement
the following behavior (and have added a new regression test):
# CREATE TEMPLATE FOR EXTENSION foo VERSION 'v' AS '';
# CREATE EXTENSION foo;
# ALTER TEMPLATE FOR EXTENSION foo RENAME TO bar;
ERROR: 55006: template for extension "foo" is in use
DETAIL: extension "foo" already exists
LOCATION: AlterExtensionTemplateRename, template.c:1040
STATEMENT: ALTER TEMPLATE FOR EXTENSION foo RENAME TO bar;

FWIW, I do agree. But my understanding is that the community consensus
is not going that way.

I think we need to follow the link model more closely because that's the
consensus, and I will fix all the remaning discrepancies in between the
two models that we can find. Please continue showing them to me!

Fixed in the attached version 9 of the patch.
