Drop support for PostgreSQL 8.4/PostGIS 1.3, 1.4

The end of upstream support periods was reached in July 2014 for PostgreSQL 8.4. As a consequence, Django 1.8 may set 9.0 as the minimum PostgreSQL version it officially supports.

This also includes dropping support for PostGIS 1.3 and 1.4 as these versions are not supported on versions of PostgreSQL later than 8.4.

I found some version checks to perform one or other action but none that checks the version number and raises an exception if it is not supported. It is suppose to be like this?

Sorry, forget to link the PR. There are still a couple test failures I need to fix.

And what about support for PostGIS 1.5?
According to PostGIS 1.5 (migrations) are not supported in Django 1.7. But according to this: PostgreSQL 9.0 (and up to 9.2) supports PostGIS 1.5.
I feel we have an inconsistency here.

Patch needs improvement: unset

You can still use Django 1.7 without migrations (and thus PostGIS 1.5).

I've fixed the test failures so the patch should be ready for review.
