it's interesting and I have a few comments.

I don't think we should force to have SignonURL. Let's take an 
application like Moodle that has its own auth method and keeps 
credentials available for all its modules. In the interface they would 
offer a link to phpMyAdmin and now with the new signon auth_type, they 
only have to set in their session

then in PMA, configure SignonSession and the auth_type. PMA would not be 
called directly.

Forcing a SignonURL means that users first start PMA which calls an 
external URL for auth. I'm talking about the case when another app is 
started first.
