AFAIR Tom has written that he will continue patching 7.3 for RHEL3 in
the name of Red Hat. So I can count is like a promise if I'm a RHEL3
customer. AFAIK it is about 3 years from now on if they will be
supporting RHEL 3 for 7 years, and 1 year from now on if the EOL is 1
year later (5-years support).

However I believe 7.4 will not live that long, since none of the RHEL
(or like) products contain PostgreSQL 7.4.
