	hi Daf !

I don't know what to do with this bug since we have now droped mediawiki1.7 
support for pgsql, partially because of this.

If I stick to strict debian packaging, then pgsql is *not* supported anymore 
for 1.7 hence upgrade should be only from 1.7 with mysql. But I know that 
many users may have previously installed it with pgsql..

Duck, I know you installed pgsql with mediawiki, what do you think of this ?
