Hey, sorry, just saw this. Doing it as a Beta Feature is a lot more work for you that just a simple option but we can go that way if you want.

@Jdforrester-WMF I thought that was your suggestion? :) Do you have option on where to put the link instead of having it in the Tools section (if you feel that is not the right place) if we just put it out there?

I'd just put it in the "Editing" tab (mw-prefsection-editing).

@Jdforrester-WMF, we hope that this feature will prove valuable enough and popular enough that it is on by default. (By which I mean: the activation trigger for it will be visible for all users.) I understand that simply adding it to the sidebar is problematic, which is why I supported making it a beta feature. I'd like us to stick to that plan. My concern is that making it an editing preference is wrong (this isn't a preference for how you edit pages) and makes the feature less discoverable.
