The postgresql-* namespace doesn't seem to be used in a consistent way:
we have packages like postgresql-9.1-debversion, but also packages such
as postgresql-plperl-9.1. And then there is one package which uses a
totally different scheme (libpgsql-9.1-asn1oid).
It would be nice if all packages could use the same scheme, maybe
starting with the packages for 9.2? As I have no preference myself,
maybe the postgres maintainers could give their view?
