Hm, so if this patch is applied now, and in 5 months or so somebody implements pg_upgrade, this numeric storage patch would be rolled back? OTOH, an upgrade mechanism that's compatible for future 8.3+ versions only seems not too attractive.
With Slony and Replicator I don't really see the need for in place upgrades.

A solution might be to keep the current numeric implementation under a different name (deprecatednumeric or so), for backward compatibility (this should apply to future storage format changes as well).
