Which means you want to keep a specific order for each table. Which is
not that simple. It means we need to record "somewhere" that you want
that the table tablename in schema schemaname in database databasename
will be sorted this way. This could make pgAdmin's config file way
bigger than it already is.

Anyway, it's probably interesting to have. I still need to think about
the UI.

BTW, keep the list in your answer.
