I actually added this support, and found missing refs like:

  Reference to ticket #1003 missing from NEWS

The ticket reference was found in:

	commit e105d93474792db7ba802ccf00c47ee6e10b983b

			Renamed st_bytea to bytea as per PostGIS
			convention.  Existing databases will not be
			affected if upgraded using the upgrade scripts.
			Associated ticket is #1003

Looking at release dates it should have got into PostGIS 2.0.0
and was missing in 1.5.3:

  PostGIS 2.0.0 (2012/04/03) before PostGIS 2.0.1 (2019/12/19)
  PostGIS 1.5.3 (2011/06/25) before PostGIS 2.0.0 (2019/12/19)

Latest 1.5 series release was 1.5.9, but even in the stable-1.5
branch there's no reference to that ticket. Shall we fix ? :)
