Tom Lane will be the resident RH/PGSQL expert (and
maybe a few others), but i would upgrade for the exact
reason you outlined.  a few hours today may well end
up resulting in many hours and headaches down the
road.  

do you necessarily need to upgrade to FC4 in order to
upgrade to pgsql 8.x?  maybe you csn just update the
db.  then again, if you will migrate to FC4 in the
future...  there's no time like the present.

however, if Tom has some insight into this - go with
his insight b/c he knows a lot more than i do.
