Have a look to the main bug

I have a couple of ideas about that:

1. it's not a true issue for etch->lenny because postgres versions
   are different and users can easily maintain the old version
   and migrate by hard upgrade script, as documented in the
   README file. So this is not a RC bug.

2. 1.3.1 is not more present in the archive, so that does not break
   anything currently.

3. We need to prepare a migration framework that uses the trick
   I shown in the report. 
   Thanks strk for a past discussion about that :-)
   That should allow a more soft migration in some cases, but anyway
   Postgis REQUIRES running soft/hard upgrades scripts for all
   its databases, and that is a MUST and users are warned about
   that in README.Debian since ages. There's not a silver bullet.

On this basis I would reduce the severity of those bugs to important.
