how about add an 'Registration' in main.php which leads to local 
registration form

this form could collect, of course after explaining and asking for 

  - number of servers/databases/tables handled with this installation
  - currently installed versions of PHP, PMA, MySQL
  - used extension mysql, mysqli
  - changed configuration (different from default)
  - used theme
  - registration information (email, name, company, ... )
  - hash of installation path (as unique id for installation)
  - hash of server connection string (as unique id for servers)
  - a free textfield for additional comments

this can be stored local, or at least a hash over all, to recognize 
changes and update registration

and of course in the phpMyAdmin project database

so we can

  - make most used settings to default
  - send security alerts on specific versions
  - statistics on used versions
  - and much more ...
