Ok, bad example. But I think you misunderstood the part about
"isolation", if that's what you mean with the part about separate.

I mean, the vast majority of pgscript will not overlap with th vast
majority of pgadmin code. Thus, someone who's "just working on the
object tree" for example, will not be affected at all by integrating
pgscript.

Whereas we should of course integrate them at all points where it's
reasonable, because that is likely to give a much better user experience.
