Maybe we could change it to an editable combobox, populating it with the source table columns.
1. user is allowed to either choose an existent field or choose a different name for pk,
2. user can create a new table with a primary key even if the original table has no one,
3. user can import data without the need to click on "Update options" button (that button loads the layer to gather the required info but it may require some time depending on the datasource).
ogr2ogr allows to choose the pk field name (see http://www.gdal.org/drv_pg.html), I guess we should keep this option available.
Suggestions are welcome.
