I don't think any of this contradicts what Marc said.

And, as Joshua pointed out it could with some work be made to run as an 
applet, which would be very cool for, say, an ISP to provide (nothing at 
all required for the user to install).

Don't get me wrong - pgadmin is cool - I especially recommend it to my 
Windows oriented clients and colleagues who hate using command lines.

I think there is room for lots of GUIs, though, and having a Java admin 
GUI would be cool too, as would having a servlet/JSP based admin client 
deployable as a web archive.

(BTW, have a look at the phpPgAdmin screen shots at - they are quite 
nice, even though I am not a PHP fan).
