I have nothing philosophically against editing message while they're
held for approval, I simply think that a decent web interface for this
is problematic, especially if you want to properly handle multiple
character sets and MIME.  I certainly wouldn't deliberately
"counter-engineer" against efforts to produce a usable interface to
such a feature, but it would have to wait until after MM2.1 to be
adopted officially.
