Thats fair.  The ability to rollback most changes isn't overly useful.
What is useful is the ability to replay commands on another database.

I suggest a good replacement would be a simple 'log' mode which writes
text based queries to a log file.  PGAdmin should be able to play an
arbitrary text file against a database connection.  This would
preserve most of the functionality and should be straight forward to
implement.   The only catch is it shouldn't have the select queries in
it which the PGAdmin uses to determine structure.
