The isbn_issn data type was included in PostgreSQL 8.1 and earlier,  
and did not handle UPCs or EANs. PostgreSQL 8.2 has replaced the  
isbn_issn contrib project with the new isn contrib project, which  
handles ISBNs, ISSN, UPCs, EANs, and lots of other good stuff. If you  
need to manage bar codes in your project, this is the data type for you!
