[Phpmyadmin-devel] Point in not being able to edit fields ('binary - do not edit') bug - or 'feature'?

It looked like a good idea to protect real binary content from being edited,
but there are editable fields with binary attribute that should be editable.

2 options I see:
- only put a warning and let the user edit
- check if the field content is printable
