In the meantime I happened to implement a similar feature request [1] as
part of my GSoC work and submit a pull request [2]. What it does is,

1. When  the user is in the database level, current database is highlighted
in the navigation panel. If the database is grouped under a database group
the groups is opened to highlight the database.

2. When the user is in the table/view level, current table/view is
highlighted in the navigation panel. Following situations are handled here.
    a. Tables/views could be directly under the database or inside
'Tables'/'Views' containers.
    b. Tables/views could be grouped based on their names.
    c. A combination of the above two.
