The point is that I'm maintaining cyrus-imapd rpms for RedHat/Fedora and
always try to provide maximum functionality with them. PostgreSQL 7.1 is
still supported there, not by the PostgreSQL team but by RedHat, so that's
not a security problem or whatever. However, I understand now that it
doesn't make sense to support those old version with cyrus-imapd because
of the changes on the PostgreSQL side.
