Yeah, we have.  It reached the "too difficult to support" point already
(the VACUUM/ctid bug back in August --- the patch used in the later
branches wouldn't apply at all, IIRC).

Personally I expect to keep supporting 7.3 for a long while, because Red
Hat pays me to ;-) ... and the EOL date for RHEL3 is a long way away yet.
The PG community may stop bothering with 7.3 releases before that.  But
I think Marc and Bruce figure "as long as the patches are in our CVS we
may as well put out a release".

We hashed all this out in the pghackers list back in August, but I agree
there ought to be something about it on the website.
