One space-saving measure would be to remove the spaces surrounding the arrow in typo replacements: "againt→against" instead of "againt → against".

Some (most?) people prefer the visual appeal of "using AWB" to "using". With this feature, the prettier version could be used most of the time while not wasting those valuable characters when necessary, and the space-saving version could be even further shortened by removing "using". Make it simply " (".

I already do something similar. When I'm fixing typos, my normal edit summary is Typo patrol. When there are so many typos that the list is truncated, I {{diff2|332371975|clear my edit summary}} to allow more of the list to show. '''Note''' a bug in my example diff: the "" got lopped off.

I agree with that. Pipe Project AWB if edit summary has enough space.
