[Phpmyadmin-devel] SQL terminology

today someone sent me a remark that phpMyAdmin does not follow the SQL 
and relational terminology when calling a column "field" and a row 
"record". I agree with him (in fact, this has annoyed me for some time) 
and here is what I intend to do:

- for the 3.4 series I'll change all messages accordingly

- for the 3.3 series I think we should leave the old terminology in 
place to avoid confusion, as 3.3.x is out since months and people 
referring to it in documentation, magazines, books, etc are using the 
old terminology
