Do not neglect security in order to avoid non-us. If current policy dictates
that PostgreSQL as it currently stands needs to go in non-us, then that's
where you should put it. Policy that requires packages depending on packages
in non-us also be in non-us will not change even if the current legal
inquiry finds that not all crypto containing uploads need to go to non-us.
