sounds interesting, but maybe also a bit complex to implement :)
In my case, when an user account (webhosting) is created on one of our
servers, everything is handled by "home made" scripts, creation
of db and mysql user setup as well, and I don't really see how
PMA could replace that. Let's see the other comments on the list :)

Something that would still be nice to have IMHA is a web-based 
config.inc.php generator: an install.php3 which would ask
a few questions (type of auth, type of server: unix->socket, nt->tcp,
etc.) and then display the corresponding configuration. 

Could then simply be cut'n'pasted by the user (or directely saved
if the chmod value is 0777, but maybe not so good...). 
Target "market": PMA newcommers, because the doc is maybe not
yet really "newbie friendly" :)  

There are other projects using such an web-based installer: for
example IMP or phpMyEdit if I recall correctely.
