8.2.x isn't really stable enough yet for Joe User to pick it up when  
they want postgresql support for random-port.  I'm definitely in  
favor of making 8.1.x the default version, and would go a little  
further, and suggest putting in a suitable deprecation date (say 12  
months for 74 and 6 months for 80).  8.0->8.1 is pretty  
straightforward, whereas there are definitely folks who need to stick  
with 7.x for a while, hence the difference in expiration dates.
