It was removed a few months ago, because no one could handle them anymore.

I can do that tonight, unless Dave works on it before.

We can do that. That's not something we usually do, this kind of issue
happens for every release of PostgreSQL and pgAdmin. You need the latest
major pgAdmin release to work with the latest major PostgreSQL release.
Moreover, since 1.10, they even have a message box telling the user than
PostgreSQL releases after 8.4 could be incompatible with their pgAdmin
release. 1.12 will have the same for post-9.0 releases.

And I hope so. Next release is still in alpha stage, it would be quite
stupid for them to publish a release not yet available (I do know they
do it sometime, but, AFAICT, they use beta release... we are not even in
beta). If PostgreSQL 9.0 beta is released in two months, they won't have
a pgAdmin 1.12 beta.

I can tell you that this "someone" is not me. I don't have the time to
work on this.
If you want to work on this, I think the main issue you'll encounter is
to get a current wxWidgets release. You need at least 2.8.8 on Linux
IIRC. 2.8.11 (released last week IIRC) would be great but not required.

You're definitely right.

I would definititely love to see this happening. Just remember that
you'll probably need to also have a backport of wxWidgets on older
