VisualEditor: Add a block slug at the end of pages
Closed, DeclinedPublic

Description

The cursor cannot be placed below the last line. This sounds trivial, but there are a lot of situations - adding stub templates, or defaultsort data, for example - where being able to trivially flip to the end of an article and have space to write is A Good Thing (tm). It'd be good to have a temporary line at the end of an article that isn't saved unless it contains anything.

We don't insert slugs if the user can create a new line by pressing enter. If the document ends in a template or other focusable item, we do.

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.
