10. There is no homebrew support for multiple versions, and no current plans 
to add it (though it's on the wishlist). This means homebrew is only useful 
if "I want to install a PostgreSQL thingie" is the common Mac use case. If 
people often need to use specific older versions, to mirror their server 
configs, it's a problem.  It *might* be possible to hack this into our 
formula, but I'm not sure it's either doable or acceptable.
