Change setup.pl initial connection from 'template1' to 'postgres' database?

Hi all,

When we decommissioned the use of 'createdb' as a dependency for setup.pl, we have replaced it by a direct connection to the 'template1' database.

However, some (most?) installs turn out to explicitly block connections (over IP interfaces??) to that database.

Should we replace the connection to template1 with a connection to the 'postgres' database? According to the documentation *that*'s the default database to be used by utilities, users, etc. Any reason not to do it in 1.3.17?
