A quick look into the CVS history says 7.2 and later.  It's certainly
workable to omit the extension for any release that any sane person
would be using ... and as for the not-so-sane ones, do you think someone
will install a Postgis release >= 2007 on a PG server <= 2001?  Do you
feel a need to support someone who tries?
