Red Hat feels (apparently accurately, judging by their subscription
revenue ;-)) that what RHEL customers want is a platform that's stable
over multi-year application lifespans.  So major incompatible changes in
the system software are not looked on with favor.  That's why RHEL4
is still shipping PG 7.4.*.  You can call it a stupid policy if you
like, but it's hard to argue with success.

However, there will be an RH-supported release of PG 8.1.* as an optional
add-on for RHEL4.  Real Soon Now, I hope --- the release date has been
pushed back a couple times already.
