I agree with this. I saw no purging mechanism in the current GSoC code 
for this feature. I think it would be more prudent to offer a manual way 
to purge tracking info, instead of auto-purging on table deletion. 
Anyway, table deletion may occur outside of phpMyAdmin.

On db deletion, it might be more complex to handle, however.
