Once Postgres supports in-place upgrades between major versions, this

It has in the past but apparently the work required in coding and
testing was too much and it the upgrade in place stuff was abandoned.
Someone please correct me if I'm wrong and someone is working on it

There's a prototype being actively worked on and if we're lucky it will debut in 8.4 this March. See http://archives.postgresql.org/message-id/48BB10A2.60503@sun.com for the last code submission there and http://wiki.postgresql.org/wiki/In-place_upgrade for an outline of the project.
