I took a look at Remi Collet's package. He's got some interesting
scripts in the spec file. They attempt to set up the pma_* db and
tables for you in mysql. I'm not sure I like the idea of an rpm
install/upgrade operating directly on a (production) database. It
might very well be harmless, but it just doesn't give me warm fuzzy
