Since the package *has* been uploaded into sid already, it doesn't make

It's rather vice versa:
postgresql testing 7.4.7-5 alpha arm hppa i386 ia64 m68k mips mipsel powerpc s390 sparc source
postgresql unstable 7.4.7-5 alpha arm hppa i386 ia64 m68k mips mipsel powerpc s390 sparc source
and -6 is in incoming.
