Thanks for the quick feedback. I'm really surprised that people who use 
VCS for their 'normal' code, wouldn't see a use for the same when it 
comes to DB Schema/DDL versions.
In any case, my goal is not to add the functionality directly to 
PGAdmin, but rather create a plugin for PGadmin to use.

As I mentionned earlier, the extent of the modifications to PGadmin 
would be to extend the plugin framework to allow a tighter coupling 
between plugins and PGadmin.
I guess maintaining a plugin is different from maintaining yet another 
feature in the existing PGAdmin code, correct me if i'm wrong.

Finally, since no one wanted to use the VCS feature in PGadmin, what do 
teams of developers use to track versions of Schemas (Tables, Views, 
Do most developers simply not use any? Or do the 'hack' their own? I'd 
be surprised if they used proprietary tools ...
