I guess the relation table from the pmadb already has room to store this
info, so it should be mostly a matter of implementing interface details.
I'd be happy to review a patch.

On the subject of guidelines ... please try to follow the coding
guidelines as referred to on http://www.phpmyadmin.net/home_page/improve.php
