	What does libpq1 do? What is in the -dev package?

	Do these interfaces have different dependencies? Does the
 python interface require python (I don't have that installed
 anymore)? If the dependencies are there, then separating out the
 interfaces shall enable me to pick and choose what I like (Don't
 forget the perl5 interface).

	We have an xcontrib package. If the stuff builds, and is even
 mildly useful, caould we please have it packaged?
