This task is about adding a yet-to-be defined set of tools to the Reply and New Discussion tool's `source` mode.
//Note: adding tools to the DiscussionTools' `source` mode depends on changes being made to the `source` mode's "editing surface".//
=== Tool ideas
//This sections contains a living list of tools we ought to consider adding.//
- **Same tools that exist in the `visual` mode**
