But picking one ... and only one ... *is* the issue.   Are we going to 
effectively endorse PGAccess over PGAdmin and Xpg?  Or vice-versa?   Web 
access is, fortunately easy due to the monopoly of PHPpgAdmin, but which 
client-side GUI to use would be a very hard decision ... and would piss off a 
significant contributor to Postgres no matter how you look at it.

Not as much as a windows port will ;-)

I do think that a PHP/Apache/PostgreSQL/PHPpgAdmin bundle is a great idea, and 
doesn't step on anyone's toes.   The question is ... who on this list is 
going to do it?
