[postgis-users] Visualizing PostGIS 3D geometries

There's the Horao plugin[1] for QGIS that might let you view postgis 3d 

It can run stand-alone as well, without QGIS.

It was developed for the SFCGAL 3D geometry types, but haven't tested on 
...Z geometry types.

Shouldn't there be a simple environment to connect to the PostgreSQL/PostGIS database and visualize the 3D geometries? Or have I really missed something here? If there isn't what is the point in having standardized geometries on a S-DBMS if you can't visualize them?
