There was some discussion on perhaps integrating python
as plugin handler so you could in theory write whatever
you want as export, import, whatever in the language on
any platform. Since on windows you have access to all the
odds of windows with python, you could natively support
excel and whatnot here. I think volontairs are still welcome :)

However, PgAdmin2 excel export has been very very slow with
resonable amount of data due to the excel feeding. Export
to a file and load into excel afterwards was much quicker
anyway. And secondly, you can run OpenOffice on windows
too.
