Actually 22 files I just counted. Some ideas we could do with those:
- Merge/Append flashcanvas.js, canvg.js and rgbcolor.js into
exporting.js (though this should be done when a pma relase is being
- When loading the monitor on demand we could save ~35kb from
server_status.js, jquery.sortableTable.js, jquery.sprintf.js (i
think), timepicker.js, codemirror.js, mysql.js
- config.js doesn't look like its required everywhere. At least it's
first comment line mentions "Functions used in configuration forms and
on user preferences pages" - maybe it could be only included where its
- Any possibility that framing_protection.js and update-location.js
can be merged into another file?

If all this would implemented we would eliminate 14.5 js files on page
load. That should significantly reduce the page load time.
