Default postgresql-* package namespace (was: Bug#683486: ITP: barman -- Backup and Recovery Manager for PostgreSQL)

Right, postgresql-X.Y-foo are server-side plugins which are specific
to a major PostgreSQL server version. They need to be versioned just
like PostgreSQL itself for upgrades, parallel installability, etc.

Where "real applications" == client-side PostgreSQL users, i. e. which
only use libpq, not build against postgresql-server-dev-X.Y.

Fwiw, I'm not saying packages must not use the postgresql namespace, I'd just leave it to the maintainer to decide.
