Upgrading stable postgresql to 7.2.4

Hi Debian release team!

PostgreSQL's upstream recently complained that Debian users still
complain about errors in 7.2 which were fixed long ago in bugfix
updates. Stable currently has 7.2.1, but there are three point
releases up to 7.2.4 up to now which only contain bug fixes and no new
features (see [1], [2], and [3]).

These bugs are not exactly "truly critical" nor do they make
postgresql uninstallable (as written in the Dev's Reference), however,
their fix may be important for many people.

Would you consider allowing 7.2.4 in the next woody point release or
doesn't it have any chance? Can I put the package in
stable-proposed-updates anyway?

Thanks and have a nice Sunday!
