Sure you do, if the new version has a feature that your application
"needs", would make things simpler for the developers, would make
things simpler for you, etc, etc.
For example: Stable has PostgreSQL v7.4, but v8.x have features
*needed* by Very Large Databases:
- Improved SMP Performance
- Table Partitioning
- 64-bit Shared Memory
- Faster Aggregates

Is "common sense" really valid?
For example, it is "common sense" to white-power racists that
whites are superior to blacks, and that those with brown skins
are mud people.
However, that "common sense" is obviously wrong.
