I think you misunderstand my "mess". I'm referring to the fact that the only
way to upgrade between major versions is with pg_dump and reload, which
really, really sucks for large databases.
- From a business perspective, there has been no reason to go through the
pain and downtime of an upgrade, as long as the PG project is releasing
point revisions to the 7.4 branch. As I said, I'm all for getting people
off 7.4, but it needs to be done with a definite date, and December is
way too soon.
