The resons for that is that the db contains a reference to library
used for building it. If one would maintain the db without running
the upgrade script, keeping the past libraries around is a way
to do that. That would not protect against uncompatible 
changes in the postgis schema anyway. So that trick helps but 
it's a partial solution (and for sure not elegant, a dirty trick as I said).
