I find that an incredible claim. You stopped working on pgAdmin because
a majority of the developers at the time thought there were tangible
benefits from the use of wxGrid in the Query Tool over wxListCtrl. You
couldn't produce a single provable technical reason why that was the
case, except to say you didn't think it would work properly. Since then
we haven't had a single bug reported that could be attributed to the use
of wxGrid. In the UK we refer to that as throwing the toys out of the pram.

I assume from what you say about your job however was that the real
reason you didn't want those changes made was because you relied on the
existing code for some extensions you had written for your own private
use - much as you once admitted was the case for some of the base/top
class splits that you implemented. No matter who the developer, that
*can never* be a factor in any design decision made in any
self-respecting Open Source project.

So noted. Thank you for replying.
