Yes, but we can hardly do something about it. But we're anyway going to
this direction (per user configuration).

After quick look into our feature tracker, we could offer at least
following editors:

- input
- textarea
- wysiwig
- textarea with deserialized data [1]
- textarea with hexadecimal data [2]


There would be definitely more options and configuring this per whole
phpMyAdmin installation does not make sense.

The API can be based on our current transformations - the function
which will display edit form can get same parameters, the function for
fetching updated data would get current row of form. I definitely miss
something here, but I don't  see why it should be complex.
