Please stop expecting the one doing the upgrade has a lot of knowledge
at all. He is just the one pointed out to perform the update. He is a
junior admin. He doe not want (nor has time and budget) taking a course,
just to upgrade da database.

<sarcasm>
Hej, let's educate the juniors! They should fall into all the pitfalls,
we've fallen in. We aren't they reading all of our fine postgresql
manual, subscribe to five mailing lists, become a senior and then
upgrade? *Gnaa*
</sarcasm>

Com'on guy! Is it really that hard to understand that others are no
gurus and have to upgrade anyway?! Why are you fighting to make their
life harder?
