#1762: Provide an unpackaged from 1.5 script

 Priority:  medium       |   Milestone:  PostGIS 2.0.1
Component:  postgis      |     Version:  2.0.x

 If someone is running 9.1 with 1.5, they can experience a fairly clean
 upgrade if their old 1.5 is repackaged as an extension.

 Then the upgrade process would be before they backup
 CREATE EXTENSION postgis VERSION "1.5.x" FROM unpackaged;
 2) run backup
 3) create a new database with:

 4) Execute legacy_minal.sql
 5) restore your backup on new db

 By packaging an unpackaged PostGIS 1.5 as an extension -- all the postgis
 functions, tables, views from old would be guaranteed not to come back and
 mess up a clean postgis 2.0 install and you can still experience a clean
 upgrade without perl.
