Indeed, those are two different ideas. In the previous version of the
ideas page, the idea was about supporting MySQL 5.5 Pluggable
authentication [0]. But this was removed because at the team meeting, we
decided against adding new features during GSoC 2012.

The new idea is about converting the existing plugin code of various
subsystems of phpMyAdmin, to a unique plugin interface.
