What we have to work with on Natty is Postgres 8.4.8 + PostGIS


even if alternate mainstream .debs of PGql+PGis exist for Natty
(do they?), the rest of the ubuntugis package cascade hasn't
been built for them.

The most important thing is that "it just works". being up to
date with the latest bleeding edge version is secondary.
This is core infrastructure for the disc & IMO we must be
very conservative with the toolchain.
