AbuseFilter should have an edit API
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

AbuseFilter has a query API for getting filter information, but no way to modify filters. This would be useful, for example, for semi-automated replacement of deprecated variables.

Another use-case is https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:AbuseFilter/944. It targets articles that are linked to on the Main Page, so it needs to be updated manually everyday. It would be to awesome have a bot do this for us!
