add a new system message between the edit box buttons and the template links so we can put charinsert in there.

Author: plugwash

Description:
this bug is based on a complaint at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Village_pump_%28technical%29#Insert_special_character_box_should_be_closer_to_the_edit_box

right now the charinsert markup on en is tacked into the top of
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning Unfortunately this
places it below the lists of templates which is not exactly very conviniant.
Hence i request a new system message (empty by default) to allow placement
directly below the edit box buttons.

[[MediaWiki:Summary]] would be a good place for the special characters. Then they
are placed between the edit-box and the summary.

However, the wiki-syntax isn't working there. But maybe a developper can change
that so we can place <charinsert> tags there.

Now [[MediaWiki:Edittools]] is implemented. It's content is preserved if the
another user interface is selected in [[Special:Preferences]]. This is not the
case for [[MediaWiki:Summary]].

Use [[MediaWiki:Copyrightwarning]]. It's on the same place in every skin.
