Dear friends

I was surprised to notice that INTERBASE already has more than a dozen 
graphical administration interfaces:
- http://www.interbase2000.org/tools_dbman.htm,
- http://delphree.clexpert.com.

In my dreams, I would welcome ALTER OR REPLACE VIEW + ALTER OR REPLACE 
TRIGGER (sorry, this is on my whish list again). Without these two features, 
this is not easily ***possible*** to build a graphical admin & IDE interface 
for PostgreSQL.

KDE3/QT3 makes it possible to build cross-platform database administration 
tools. We don't need a dozen of them, just one good IDE with migration 
features from MySQL, Oracle, MS SQL, Interbase...

The community is waiting for ALTER OR REPLACE, my friends... We also need 
ALTER TABLE DROP FIELD, but this is probably more tricky.

Cheers,
Jean-Michel POURE
