[Phpmyadmin-devel] config.inc.php generator: a suggestion

I've tested a few things today, here is a little something
to (re-)open the discussion :)  I think it would be nice if PMA
would have a simple configuration generator, like in many
other projects: 

What about something simple like that? :     

Scoll to the end of the page to find the [generate] button.

It's based on the orginal Documentation.html, with
some special "cfgen" tags, which are simply parsed
by the setup/index.php script.  (look at the .html source of
the original http://www.phpmyadmin.net/swix_pma/Documentation.html )

source:  http://www.phpmyadmin.net/swix_pma/setup/index.phps
and http://www.phpmyadmin.net/swix_pma/setup/generate.phps

The generate.php script needs a special version
of the config.inc.php files (with lines like:
"$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = '%%blowfish_secret%%'; ")

Do you think something like that would be good? 
Is that the right way?  Feedback welcome :)

regards & have a nice week-end,
