But finding errors especially in classes/objects without this make it 
really hard sometimes!

If trigger_error() is a problem on a system than every error is a 
problem on this system.

If PMA would not give out any errors it just need to set his own 

I do not fully understand what is the problem with trigger_error or what 
  makes the problems with trigger_error bigger than normal errors?

The real problem is displaying errors to the client, not triggering an 
error - so this is a system setting not an application setting.

The only way to handle this is that PMA uses his own error handler.

Or did i understand something completely wrong?
