I added 9.4 (and 9.5) jobs to the pgapt jenkins some weeks ago and
built some modules. 9 green, 2 yellow (built but autopkgtests fail),
and 6 reds don't look too bad. Some of the failures are because the
packages don't have 9.4 (or "all") in debian/pgversions yet, or other
trivial problems. I'll investigate those.

Generally I think 9.4 won't be a big porting hurdle, but of course
individual packages have, well, individual problems. pl/R isn't really
special, that's one of the "green" ones. PostGIS is of course much
more involved. Markus?

I'll start by uploading pg-common to experimental with 9.4 added to
the supported-versions (with 9.3 still default so we don't have to
roll back anything).

I'll poke the PG people if there's any ETA for beta2.
