uh, with buttons the list (for example on my server with 140 db's)
it will become huge!  

Other idea for left.php:
what about putting all db's in a <select></select>, and display
the tables list just below (with reload of the frame with the
correct infos on db change) ? Do you see what I mean ?

  [ db_name  ]  [go]
   -table 1
   -table 2
   -table 3

-> smaller frame  (could add another frame for docs or proprieties)
-> quicker
-> less javascript -> better compatibility

Just checked the size of left.php (save as...) when loading 
phpmyadmin on my server:
-rw-r--r--    1 om       users      463400 Aug 10 14:34 left.php

So I think that would be a nice improvement : when working on a
db, I usually never need to see all other db's from server.
