For me it's it's not a pgadmin alike (or rather a more featureful
version) that's breaking the camel's back.  By far the biggest one I
hear is auto-HA.  There's no in-core support, and pretty much all of the
stuff out there is immature as hell. And even if it weren't people for
good reason don't trust such core aspects to $random_project.  Good,
easy to set up, monitoring is another thing - and I don't thing
check_postgres is a significant portion of that, it doesn't have much in
the way of guidelines, and actually pointing people to where problems
