I'm looking at:


and it says:

2. Do a fresh install of PostGIS in a new database ... Please refer to 
Section 2.5, “Create a spatially-enabled database on PostgreSQL lower 
than 9.1” for instructions on how to do this

I assume in my new PG 9.1 db I can just use create extension, right? 
Maybe the docs could say, (for < 9.1 go to this link, for >= 9.1 use 
create extension).
