Some of the guys in Toronto got excited about it, but I can't see a lot
of value there myself.  If you're still running 6.5.3, is it likely you
notice updates from anywhere?

Red Hat 6.2 is still nominally supported (until March 31, it says here)
so I suppose there's a corporate compulsion to back-patch anything
that's labeled a security issue.  But let's get real ... PG 6.anything
is stone-age code now.

PS: I'm not taking a position on Justin's suggestion that there should
be a 7.2.4.  Marc and Bruce would be the ones who have to do the work,
so they get to make the decision...
