I certainly hope not.  I've seen lots of browser apps that were nice
enough to use for casual use by a casual user.  I've never seen one
that was an effective power tool for power users, the way psql is.
Now maybe they are out there and I just don't know about them, but I
have my doubts.

As an additional tool, to each his own.  But a browser-based
replacement for psql, -1 from me.

And as far browser-based things apply to this patch, I must say I've
tried micromanaging the way large amounts of data wrap in a HTML table
when I found the default to be inadequate, and I have not found that
to be noticeably easy, either.

The original version of this patch was only a few lines long and did
one very simple and useful thing: avoiding the printing of whole
screens full of hyphens when in 'expanded mode'.  If we end up
reverting the other parts of this patch, hopefully we don't lose that
