Already ahead of you :-)
I was going to suggest a new RA API rather than rev'ing get_commit_editor.
By going that route, the coding can occur on trunk, and we migrate as
appropriate, leaving the delta editor in place.
This would be the new "commit plan, followed by drive" design we discussed.
The new RA entrypoint(s) could even have a default implementation in ra/
that would use the original delta editor. Thus, we don't even have to
implement the new interface for all layers.
