I disagree with that because you cannot expect the user to have the
privileges he needs to change the table structure. Imho, the best
solution would be to modify the code that checks the status of the
relational tables. Furthermore, PMA_mysqlDie() shouldn't be called if
the query fails: In this case, your feature should be disabled, instead.

Nevertheless, you should documentate the new configuration directives
and table structure.

Sorry, I did not notice the history feature at first look. Of course I
don't want to drop it, either!

Happy fixing :o)
