Just have to port a phpkit database to something else. It seems, the phpkit ppl did not really understand what SQL is for.
The 'phpkit_config' table in this case contains 255(!) columns and a lot of this columns seems to be for extensions.
This is a very good example where you should use normalization: you don't add more and more columns to one table but you have a key/value table and for new entries you add a new key with a value. No need to change the table at all.
