Gavin Sherry and I have just spent a week at the Linux.conf.au.  The
feedback we got from users was basically this:

1. We don't allow untrusted users unlimited SQL access
2. Upgrading PostgreSQL sucks
3. We want important corruption fixes
4. So, keep supporting older versions (7.2.x at least)

So, basically I think it is a VERY good idea for us to keep releasing 7.2.x
versions for a long time.

BTW, I'll be posting a linux.conf.au postgres report soonish...
