Sure it would.

The problem is that although those users may change a user's privileges,
they are not automatically allowed to view the current privileges. This
makes developing a GUI for this purpose really hard.

We could use the conroluser to read the privileges the current user may
alter, but this should not be the default behavior of phpMyAdmin.

While revising server_privileges.php3, I thought about splitting it up into
server_privileges.php3, db_privileges.php3, tbl_privileges.php3 and
libraries/privileges_common.lib.php3. If I did so, I could try to find a way
to merge this feature.
