What I don't like about text file solution is that it brings need to
maintain parser for that. Having the data as PHP array would avoid this
and I think it could be as readable as the text file is. I would see
great advantage of text file if it could be shared with other tools,
what I don't think it is the case right now. Being only for phpMyAdmin,
I'd stick with PHP code.

On the other side, translation could be solved for text file as well,
if we decide to use it.
