I'm a bit late on this discussion, but I, for one, have liked having
some of the pgaccess info stored with the database. That way, no matter
what machine I connect to the DB from, I get the same set of functions,
queries, and schema-documents.

BTW, has the 'schema' tab been renamed yet? With actual schema in 7.3,
that'll get confusing.
