Hrmm, funny thing is that I am working on basically the same thing,
except mine is written with perl-gtk.  This gives me the flexibility of
connecting to any database with a DBI driver, which is practically every
database that I can think of including stupid ones like Access.

My GUI uses a tree structure with the available drivers at the top
level.  On the next level are the available datasources, then the
tables.  You can drag-and-drop tables from one DB to the other, or
records from one table to another.  This is only tested with
mySQL<->Oracle, though.

Anyway, nice to see that someone else is working on a similar project. 
I would probably get complacent without any competition.
