There is a planned redesign of the table dialogue that will achieve
this. Just need to find the time.

It should generally. When does it not?

The wizard is designed to overcome lack of support for GRANT ... ON
ALL TO ALL etc. which some other DBMSs have. I think the schema was
excluded from the Wizard because it's a single object so doesn't
really need the wizard like 20 tables might. I can't say I'm wed to
that behaviour though - feel free to submit a patch!

File -> Options -> Preferences -> Show users for privileges

You can, though I see they're at the end of the list (probably because
it lists types, array types and then the pseudo-types are added).

That option shouldn't be there, as we don't support hiding objects
down at that level. Removed.

> * Want to be able to specify ConnectionLimit for users via dialog

You can, though that may be new in 1.10 iirc.
