I would love if we could do the discussion in the open on debian-grass
list. It is very probable that other people might silently learn from
it and you need always to be aware that I might ignore netiquette and
start quoting you in public - just be warned. ;-)

For me this sounds like Recommends. Since Recommends will be installed
by default if you don't do anything while exactly knowing what you
are doing it usually will be installed. Puristic people should have
a chance to install it even without postgresql (may be they have
their own manually installed postgresql server and thus it sounds
reasonable not to push for a hard Depends.
Hope this helps (and feel free to quote me in public)
