our project page here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/phppgadmin/
An item is marked 'claimed' when a username in brackets is put after the TODO
item. If you want to work a claimed item, please contact the developers list.
An item is marked with a '-' if it has been completed.

Tables
------
* Rewrite WITHOUT OIDs with more natural WITH OIDS

Exotic
------
* Pivot reports (ADODB has a feature for this)
* Parameterized reports (use prepared queries)
* Full web accessability conformance
Principles
----------
* register_globals off support
* maximum error_reporting support - enforces code quality, reduces bugs and
improves security
* PHP 5.0 features used
* No HTML font, colour, layout tags. Use CSS for everything
* One day we should make it all XHTML
* everything properly escaped - prevent sql injection and cross-site scripting
probs
* Support Postgres 8.4 and upwards
* psql -E is a cool way of seeing how to do schema queries
* Checking out older versions of describe.c in src/bin/psql in the postgres
distro is a good way of seeing how to query older versions of postgres for
schema information
* Put functions in the highest class possible. For instance, simple selects
should be in Postgres, whereas something that works for < 8.2 should be in the
8.1 class. This will minimise bugs and duplicated code.
* Adhere to current coding standards
* Avoid using global variables if possible
