[Phpmyadmin-devel] Passing POST variables

For the last few hours, I've been trying to use jQuery to implement
pagination via AJAX in phpMyAdmin.  The page I've selected for
experimenting is the sql.php page, where one can view a table from a
database.  I've right now created a javascript file, included it in
the DOM via the $GLOBALS['js_include'] array, and bound an AJAX call
on the navigation buttons.

When I execute the call for a particular table, sql.php replies with
the results for the next 30 rows, but it also outputs a lot of other
html.  As a way around this, I plan to use a variable 'ajax_request',
which is set to true when an AJAX call is being made, and accordingly,
wrote the jQuery script.  If ajax_request is set to true in $_POST, I
will modify the output of sql.php and print only the table containing
the data from the table, the profiling data, (and any other necessary
part) and prevent the printing of the header, footer and other tabs.
However, due to the sanitization of $_GET, $_POST and $_REQUEST, I am
unable to access the variable.

I tried adding the variable name to variables_whitelist and the
array_list arrays in libraries/common.inc.php, but I guess those are
the wrong places.  Could someone please tell me where I'm going wrong,
or which is the right php file/function to check?
