I would agree with that.

I would *strongly* disagree with that.  Postgresql v7 introduced a
number of what I would consider gratuitious changes, such as changing
of some of the programs (pg_*) and also eliminating SQL comment syntax
compatability (// syntax).  This is going to break packages that
aren't prepared for it and I think it's too major of a change to try
to cram into potato.
