I wish the desirable features for 7.3 included all of alter table 
implemented. Do you know if it is BTW? A bit out of touch with the 'to do' 
and 'Now done' lists.

Tricky.
My gut feeling is get the classes / object model as close as possible to 
what PostgreSQL exposes. As stated for 7.2 and before this is one thing, 
for 7.3 onwards its another.

Perhaps you can freeze pgAdminII code base at some soon point, make it 
known this is where support for 7.2 and earlier ends, and move the version 
number up a notch and follow through with the 7.3 only route from here on 
in? Perhaps for a season offer bug fixe releases only to the frozen 7.2 
version, with a cut off date, roughly in keeping with the expected adoption 
rate of 7.3. For us mere NT/2000 folk, perhaps also wait until 7.3 is out 
on Cygwin, too before freezing all support for 7.2.

Ahhh, the wonderful world of open source.... Its like looking at the best 
countryside in full clarity..... but whilst sitting on a train,
the view always keeps shifting..
