Good, so we can make the beta and say it works with both Postgres and

I think about two (IMO) necessary things:
* a basic form to be able to modify the data of tables and views from
  Mergeant (I'm working on it now)
* I need to have the widget we talked about quite some time ago: the one
  which displays a tree of some shemas (tables, fields, data types, etc)
  because it needs to be used in several places (New query druid, query
  edition at least)
* a dialog to manage the libgda data sources (at the moment I ihave to
  manually edit the ~/.libgda/config file, and this file is needed for
  Mergeant to work).
