 Replying to [comment:1 johnbillion]:
 > Shouldn't it be set transparently to avoid showing another field during
 setup? That way we avoid showing an additional field during setup and
 having to explain what it's for.

 Maybe we can add an "Advanced" section to the install screen where it asks
 for the database credentials, The Advanced section can contain the secret
 key, and anything else which the user may want to set (ie, the Debug
 settings - default to none, Database charsets, anything else which can be
 set in wp-config -- Object cache?)

 The Advanced section by default wouldbt be shown, But a [+] could expand
 it using javascript or something?
