Definitely phpMyAdmin; you have to run one additional command, but in return 
all that PMA stuff etc. is set up.

The next thing after setting up phpMyAdmin for me was Best Pracitcal's 
"Request Tracker".  You can forget "emerge rt", since it won't work with 
Apache 2.x (see #54764), so I had to do everything by hand (setting up 
FastCGI and getting those damn deep Perl module dependencies resolved).  At 
one point I stopped using "emerge perlmodulename" and started using cpan, 
because too many packages were masked (I admit, this was on hppa).

And the next thing most desktop users would be very excited about is MythTV, 
but I guess that's upstream again.  Setting up this beast is a real turn-off.

Tim.
