We are currently running your suggestion (two instances of PG) in a
production server, with no obvious problems attributable to the setup
(we have seen some performance problems with one system, but those are
likely caused by bad db/application design).

In our case the two systems are running different minor versions
(although we are planning to migrate them both to the latest 7.4.x).
