Based upon feedback so far, I'm incline to suggest that we include 
PostGIS 2.0 on OSGeo-Live (and no prior versions).

It seems like there will be a couple of projects which might need to 
make some tweaks to their applications, something that would be in the 
pipeline for these applications' development paths already.
So I propose:
1. We discuss this at our weekly meeting tomorrow:

2. Assuming all agree, test installing PostGIS 2.0 only for the next few 
OSGeo-Live builds. If a showstopper issue is found, then roll back to 
Our key criteria is that all quickstarts work, and applications which 
can connect to a Postgis data source have been tested to see if they can 
still do so, at least for a simple case.
