I see why some people don't like it, or consider it dangerous. On a
sidenote, I wonder if they don't like spreadsheets either, because a
cell can be edited by just one click as well. (But a spreadsheet most
of the time has an undo button or a save button, and implementing this
in phpmyadmin would be too difficult I guess)

I actually like this grid editing feature a lot, so if we change it's
behaviour I would suggest not to hide it too much. Double clicking
would be fine, but Shift or Ctrl-click would hide this feature too
much, IMHO.
Adding a configuration option (or user preference) that defines how
the grid editing is activated (as proposed in the tracker item), seems
a good idea to me.
