The packages currently in the testing repository are rebuilt from
upstream, and are designed to be used in conjunction with the
compat-libs packages in the testing repo also. This allows for the use
of pgsql-8, without rebuilding packages in the base/updates such as
php. Mostly it's designed to be a drop-in replacement.
