That's what I'm offering at the moment at
www.pse-consulting.de/pgadmin3/pgadmin3.zip. Maybe we should have a more
official place for this?

Done. I don't have rules and operator classes test cases, would you
please check them?
User and database variables implemented.

Well, seems like a punishment to me... Do we really need ALL objects
supported for a release? I believe for the first step we could reduce it
to the most used object types, omitting rarely used ones. Virtually
nobody will miss a Operator Class wizard...
Here is my ranking with descending priority:
- User (done)
- Foreign Key

Which formats are needed?
- CSV, with selectable separator, escape char, string delimiter, line

Export: same question as above.
I totally agree to keep pgAdmin3 at a reasonable core functionality.
Still, some maintenance tools for daily work should be included in the
next release. VACUUM is one of them, and database backup and restore is
just the same level.
