No, not at present

Yes, it certainly would. Remember the Access Migration tool in pgAdmin
I? It was the only part that I didn't rewrite for pgAdmin II because
it was too much work.

The other issue, is that as soon as we've done MySQL, there will be
another email say 'but what about $OTHER_DBMS?'

There are probably also licensing issues, with the MySQL connectors
all being GPL...

So, I think such a feature would need a strong, ongoing commitment
from a developer who is interested in such tools, once the licencing
issues are overcome.

BTW; did you try the MySQL migration wizard available through
StackBuilder (which comes with the one-click installers)? Were there
problems with that?
