Looks good here too.

Ok I just tested it, the converter looks ok here, but:

- We should document the fact that perl may be somewhere else than /usr/local/bin/perl

- Can it be done easily in PHP? I would prefer not adding PERL as a requirement for phpMyAdmin.

I prefer a converter than maintaining config_import_lib.php3 and the future variables.
