Updating from 9.0 to 9.1 or 9.2 is (AIUI, haven't done it myself) less
of a nuisance, so I could see dropping 9.0, maybe.

As I've said before I don't think 8.4 should be dropped before it's
EOL upstream, and maybe not immediately even then. There's certainly
no reason to rush to drop old postgres versions faster than old mysql
