PostGIS Manager is in about beta quality - it lacks more extensive
testing and has probably some unresolved bugs or missing features but
generally it should be usable.

I don't know whether it's a good idea to document it in this phase.
Probably plugins shouldn't be documented in main user manual and
should be documented on their own. This IMO would better reflect
different release cycles of plugins and QGIS - imagine that a python
plugin documented in docs for 1.0 will be altered heavily during life
of qgis 1.0 - leaving users with outdated documentation. There could
be a unified way of documenting plugins, e.g. each one with docs
included would contain directory "doc" with index.html and potentailly
more files. The docs would be written in HTML format, preferably using
only subset supported by Qt. Documentation writers would help plugin
developers to write the docs, like this plugins will have always fresh
documentation available that could be opened anytime (and not
requiring user to search for appropriate chapter in QGIS docs).
