sounds ok. thinks like this lightleft on/off should probably better be
saved in a cookie on client's side.

So as replacement for the 
$cfgServers[2]['host']          = '';
$cfgServers[2]['port']          = '';
$cfgServers[2]['socket']        = '';
$cfgServers[2]['connect_type']  = 'tcp';
$cfgServers[2]['stduser']       = '';
part of the db?

well, the config file is valid for both "normal" users and superuser,
and superuser will probably prefer the light version.  Mmm, maybe we could
add an array in the config file to define the default view on a per-user

$defaultLight = array(	"root"=>TRUE,

Everything is possible :)
