Display the Table of Contents (ToC) during edit


The Table of Contents (ToC) vanishes in edit-mode.

Seeing the complete ToC during editing, can help prevent mistakes in both content and article-layout.

This can be particularly problematic in articles that have long infoboxes or many images near the top. We're /meant/ to space items, so that having the ToC collapsed/hidden doesn't negatively effect the layout, but this is often not the case in pages at less than Featured quality.

Agreed, this is something we want to do. Right now the focus is getting the initial editing tools out for the beta, but this should be something we get to reasonably soon after that.

The core ToC widget is now merged, but doesn't insert in the right location so is disabled in production until that is fixed. Resetting.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
