Naming of postgresql & related

I just wonder about naming postgresql, some other ports could have
the same. Currently postgresql installs v.7.4.12. Then we have
postgresql7 (v.7.4.13), postgresql8 (v.8.1.3) and postgresql81 (v.
8.1.4). This is a mess. I think postgresql should always be the
latest, then we could, if we want, to have version-specific ports
(~7, ~8, ~81). How about this?
The related thing comes from the fact that the database formats
between point versions of postgresql are not compatible (8.0->8.1).
Is there a way to make sure that database is dumped before upgrade.
Could one ask a question from the user and wait for an answer (to
confirm the operation)?
