OK. Note that the different pages should be on a wxNotebook - don't
use buttons to control the UI (we've - OK, I've - made that mistake

The different sources should be on a single 'Source' tab. At the top
of that tab, use a radio button set to allow the user to select the
source type, and have that swap in/out framed sets of controls
underneath. For a very basic example of this, look at the Report form
which changes the stylesheet options based on whether you select HTML
or XML output.

Hmm, pgsql expressions could be slow as they can only be evaluated in
insert statements, which is really not good for such a tool. I would
- Consider embedding Python (which is on the TODO anyway) and allowing
transforms to be scripted on the client.
- Convert the import data to a COPY compatible format so it can be fed
directly to the server without using INSERT which is *much* slower.
