I did a dumb thing ... (apt-get/postgres related)

My first apt-get upgrade that bumped postgres to 7.3 didn't auto update,
so I was futzing with a manual upgrade and it wasn't working, so since I
had a recent dump of the data and it's not a production machine (it's my
workstation) I tried using uninstalling the package (dpkg -r) and
reinstalling but it kept hanging, so I started deleting stuff manually
... including /etc/postgres

Now no matter what combination of options/switches I use I can't
uninstall, reinstall or upgrade postgres ... even worse, now that rev4
of the package is in sid I can't even apt-get upgrade because it keeps
failing on postgres ...

What do I do?  How do I fix? .... I'm looking for the "just forget what
the f*$(@(# you think you have installed and why it's bad, just do what
I'm telling you" flag in apt-get/dpkg and I'm not finding it.
