I was under the impression that the old editor interface was
the limiting factor here, in particular the (lack of) parameters
we pass to certain functions.

Would we not need to rev the editor vtable for this?
Of course, revving that interface is a lot simpler than implementing
editorv2, but I thought we'd take the time to do things "right" instead
of adding hacks upon hacks to get things working with the old interface.

But I am definitely not complaining if we can get moves working without
editorv2 because that means we'll get user-visible results much quicker.

Sounds good to me. I don't know exactly how you would solve it,
but I'll get back to you about this when I am ready to send moves :)
