They ARE routine, though. When dealing with databases anything more
than a bugfix upgrade is suspect and you should be aware of such.
Further, if an upgrade announcement wasn't necessary any time in the
past (the only remotely related announcement was regarding a patched
security vulnerability in Postgres in 2008), I don't see why one is
necessary now. A post-install message is the right place for this.
