PostgreSQL - proposed package

Being now convinced that the previous maintainer(s) of Postgres95 have passed
from the scene, I propose to make a package of PostgreSQL, its successor.
If anyone objects, please speak up!

Being fairly new to the packaging business, I should like some advice on a
few matters:

1. postgres95 divided the upstream source into 4 sections: postgres95,
   postgres95-dev, libpq1 and postgres95-doc. While I can see the point of
   most of these, I am not sure of libpq1: would it be acceptable to
   bundle the library in with the development system?

2. PostgreSQL provides interfaces for C (libpq), C++ and TCL.  Should
   these be separate packages or can they again be merged into the
   development package?

3. What should be done with the software in PostgreSQL's contrib area?
