Hi devs,

Let's discuss the game plan for 2.3.0.

- Merge the patches currently from the tracker

- Merge/code the new db-based config

- code some new features (I will be working on MyISAM options, and InnoDB support, + the Relation

- interface: it's about time we split the pages:  db_detail and tbl_properties. 

Suggestions for the tbl_properties split
- generally, we move large sections of tbl_properties to seperate pages

- an [Export] link at the top, calling a page with the "view dump" dialog

- an [Attributes] link, for Alter table order by, Comments, Table type, and the upcoming MyISAM
options (and InnoDB)

- an [Operations] link, for Rename, Move, Copy, Maintenance (4 items), Flush, Drop (maybe Insert
data from a file)

- a [Structure] link, to show Fields and Indexes, + the Add field

- (not sure about this) by default, users clicking on a table name would see the familiar Browse,
Select, Insert, Empty, Drop  + the 4 new links, at the top, but not the structure. I find that most
of the time, I don't want to see the structure, I just want to type queries, use bookmarks, and be
able to use the other main links.

- a right/top-frame for the links?

Please comment.
