With postgis-2.0.3-1, dependencies changed quite a bit.

postgis and postgresql-9.1-postgis are now entirely independent
packages. postgresql-9.1-postgis only recommends postgis. And postgis in
turn just suggests postgresql-9.1-postgis.

(The later is only a suggestion mainly because i.e.
postgresql-9.2-postgis may well be a better alternative, if available.)

I didn't split the GUI tools out of postgis, so far. However, given the
relaxed dependencies between postgis and postgresql-9.1-postgis, do you
agree to close this bug?
