As of PostgreSQL 9.0, parallel installation is enabled, I mean, you will
be able to install 9.1 along with 9.0 when it is released. So, init
script name changed to reflect PostgreSQL version.

Nope. RPMs have never ever added PostgreSQL to startup sequence by

Well, we used alternatives method for that:
$ ls -l `which psql`
/usr/bin/psql -> /etc/alternatives/pgsql-psql
# ls -l /etc/alternatives/pgsql-psql
/etc/alternatives/pgsql-psql -> /usr/pgsql-9.0/bin/psql
However, we omitted that for some specific binaries like pg_ctl, which
is pretty intentional.

Right, RPMs don't do such interactive work.
