#354 (ok 4.5) PDF schema sort options

PDF (13)

I'd like to see an assignable sort order for the table list. I see
three useful possibilities:

1. Sort on table name (I've patched mine to do this)
2. Sort on table organization
e.g. ORDER BY x, y -or- ORDER BY y,x
3. Sort by database order (current)

It requires adding a simple ORDER BY statement at the end of the
$page_query assignment in pdf_pages.php. All I've done to mine
is add
. ' ORDER BY table_name'
at the end of the $page_query assignment. This may not be the
correct way (I'm not very familiar with the PMA infrastructure)
but it works.

This could be selectable on the page (retained between
submissions) and settable as a default.

Also, I'd like to see the 'Display PDF Button' state maintained
between submissions for changes to the layout, possibly even
between sessions (or at least a default that can be changed).
For instance, I typically shut off 'Data Dictionary' when I'm
working on the layout.

Thanks for the great product,
