Because PostgreSQL requires a dump and reload between 7.3 and 7.4 I wonder if
we can create a new package called postgresql74 for this version. We do this
for Python and, as far as I can tell, it is less important to run specific
versions of Python than it is for PostgreSQL. In the past I have rebuilt all
my packages only to find that because of a version change I could no longer
access my databases.
Note that PostgreSQL guarantees that changes between minor releases does not
require a dump and reload so 7.3.1 could be upgraded to 7.3.2 without any
problem for example.
