I'm not 100% convinced about not having a config.inc.php but I agree 
with your idea for the moment. Do you want to split this work with me?

We'll also have to make sure that this bug
is fixed. Maybe Sebastian has an idea about this?

So, in libraries/config.default.php, everything starting from "MySQL 
settings" would be moved somewhere else, like in 
libraries/common.lib.php just after
$_SESSION['PMA_Config'] = new PMA_Config('./config.inc.php');
