Little patch for Mediawiki external editor

For the OpenSolaris governance discussions, the community is using the wiki at The genunix team installed Mediawiki, used most famously for the Wikipedia, to support communal editing.

I’m a creature of Vim, and am quite happy with the recently released Vim 7. Tying the external editor feature of Wikipedia to Vim is straightforward, if you install Erik Möller’s ee script—and tweak it a little.

Below you’ll find a modified version that respects the http_proxy setting, handles the case where no matching site is present in your ee.ini file, and adds a configuration option to not append the “using an external editor” string to your article’s change summary.
