A better tool that pgAdmin?

What's a good, free database designing/administrating tool which works with postgresql? I've been using pgAdmin III, and while that does the basics, it doesn't have useful features like a buffer of previous queries and their results.

I want something similar to pgAdmin but with more convenience features. The ability to save queries in a buffer so that they can be edited and re-run is key.

I'm more concerned with a flexible way to design the database (create schema and experiment, and edit procedures and views) than with administration or data manipulation.

Your recommendations?

Maybe DB Manager Pro would help. I've been using their free version against a MySQL database for writing queries and exporting database definitions. They also have a visual designer utility that looks useful, but costs extra.

What platform?

Win2K, running cygwin. I can compile stuff with gcc if necessary, or the MS command-line compile if really, really, really necessary.

(Sorry... I was going to suggest CocoaMySQL, a great tool for Mac OSX...)

(oops... then I finally read your post properly, and see you were asking about postgresql...)

Nevermind... I got nothing...
