Some people consider the extended support and easy upgrades of the RHEL5 
versions valuable enough that they have a strong preference to use the 
version of PostgreSQL that ships with it.  Right now, when such people 
ask me about using 8.1 in that context, I tell them while it would be 
better if they ran something more recent, the performance of that 
version is reasonable and the bugs they might run into aren't that 
serious.  This is not the case at all for either 7.4 or 8.0, which have 
been completely indefensible as versions to consider deploying for quite 
some time already.
