Red Hat wrote some good ones for their PG-based Red Hat Database product.
I don't know if they're still being maintained or what. 

Unfortunately they re-wrote all their tools in Java recently, so you can
expect the usual Java-ness on those apps.

Red Hat Administrator was pretty good to manage DBs. Although I haven't
tried Visual Explain, I can totally see its usefullness.

There's also Tora, which was originally for Oracle, but works for MySQL
and PostgreSQL through Qt's DB layer. It worked very well. Their website 
says the oracle product was bought, but Tora is still available on Debian.


Just because you're paranoid, don't mean they're not after you.
