I'm pretty sure the postgresql package points at postgresql-7.4 not because
it's the preferred version, but because there's no automated upgrade path
from 7.4 to 8.1 (and can't be so long as they're parallel installable), and
"postgresql" was the real name of the 7.4 server package shipped in etch.
Steve Langasek Give me a lever long enough and a Free OS
Debian Developer to set it on, and I can move the world.
