The package "postgresql" a virtual package pointing to postgresql-7.4
and will remain that way until etch releases (backward compatability).
At that point a system was created that would allow you to install many
versions of postgresql simultaneously. If you want postgresql 8.1 you
need to install the package "postgresql-8.1", you don't need to
uninstall 7.4 at the same time.

You can then run the upgrade script to migrate the databases, and when
done you can uninstall 7.4 (unless you want to keep it ofcourse).

Have a nice day,
