Christoph and I talked about this the other day. So far the plan was
to upload 9.3 to unstable once its release candidate is out. At this
point we'll deprecate 9.1 from unstable, ask maintainers to update
their extensions to 9.3, and remove 9.1 from unstable.

I think 9.2 should never hit unstable, as it will only cause extra
work to get rid of its reverse dependencies again.

For Jessie I think we'll ship 9.3 or 9.4, depending on how long it
takes this time. But as with previous Debian releases, the goal is to
only support one major version, plus perhaps the old version's -plperl
to faciliate upgrades.

Does that sound ok?
