Indeed the task should depend on postgresql-8.1, since this will be
the prefered version of PostgreSQL for new Etch installs.

Right, this has to stay as it is for a clean upgrade. The transitional
'postgresql' source/binary page will be dropped immediately after Etch
is released, so Lenny will only ship with postgresql-X.Y (and probably
