Can you describe this in more detail? We can already manage and create
types in pgAdmin (albeit our support for complex types requiring an
initial 'shell' type is somewhat lacking).

I think that makes sense if pgAdmin were doing the data import. As a
standalone function I don't think it would be obvious what it was for.
