Seems to me like you're making good progress.

It's a small thing, but when I go to the Privileges tab and click the 
"Add a new user" link, the page immediately says "Loading" -- which is 
good -- but it's made to be the top thing on the page where I'll never 
see it unless looking for it. I'd much rather see that type of feedback 
closer to the Add a new user button or as a graphic superimposed over 
the entire page. Either way, I feel the "Loading" at the top of the page 
(above even the server name) is too obscure for users to notice.

Actually that location for feedback occurs with the reload privileges 
link, too; at 1240x768 screen resolution I don't even see the messages, 
all I see is the rest of the content shift up and down (because I've 
scrolled down the page a bit).

Also "Add a new user" seems broken on the demo server[1] ("currently 
running Git revision 06a7736 from master branch"), when I click the 
link, the right frame never finishes loading. I see the textboxes for 
creating a user for a fraction of a second before the page goes white.

After renaming a database, I first get the very alarming prompt asking 
if I wish to DROP my database (yes, the full text is "CREATE 
DATABASE...and then DROP DATABASE foo" but as a user all I see is that 
I'm dropping it). I think that can be a more friendly prompt.

Once I agree to that, I get stuck in "Reload Database" (No, Yes) -- if I 
hit "Yes" that same dialog is presented, if I press No the database is 
renamed but both frames act as if I'm still in the old database. (again 
"currently running Git revision 06a7736 from master branch").

You could look at wordpress.com; Michal's blogspot.com suggestion was 
good too as I know people who use both.
