The only difference in Ubuntu is the fix for
http://bugs.debian.org/499548 (missing dependency) which hasn't been
applied in Debian yet.
The slony1 package indeed DTRT, it builds postgresql-X.Y-slony1. Thus
if you upgrade from e. g. an 8.1 system, the -8.1-slony package will
stick around, and you can install postgresql-8.3 and
postgresql-8.3-slony1 to do the upgrade.
