With regards to GUI tool kits, there are two kinds you are talking
about.  One kind is an administration gui with or without design
capabilities like pgaccess.  

The other is a 3GL or 4GL or script language GUI like forte (used to be) or TCL
to develop forms for a database application. *Our* strength is that we work 
well with a lot of client development tools.  However, I don't know of any
that are integrated with the system catalog.  I'd sure like a gui tool
that can throw up a form based on a view or table and just do the right
thing.  There may be something close like gnomedb, but I've never been
able to get one to work (that I didn't write myself :-).
