Sorry for the delay in answering.
I've been thinking about it and I believe the best option would be to
create a separate repository as it is a new tool to help theme developers
and not a new feature of the phpMyAdmin itself.
Another advantage would be that Saksham would have more freedom in
developing and choosing technologies as it would not have dependencies on
the phpMyAdmin code.
