+1 for blowing it off.  I can't see the point in putting effort into
this.  Nobody should be spinning up new PostgreSQL 9.1 deployments at
this point, and whatever PostgreSQL 9.1 deployments already exist are
evidently OK with what we've been doing up until now.  So it seems
unlikely to help anyone.

Also, if it does help someone, it will be helping them to deploy a
nearly-obsolete PostgreSQL version at a time when, really, it would be
much better if they were thinking about how to get off that version.

Moreover, it's not inconceivable that back-porting all of those
commits could break something that works now, in which event we would
end up worse off than we are today.

So I really don't see any upside.
