ya, this sounds good, and along with a backup mechanism as mentioned below
could be very helpful.

The idea is to have two EditForms in Site group.
Exampls Site.EditForm(default) and Site.EditFormBakup
When somehow Site.EditForm gets non-usable, one can use
editform=Site.EditFormBak to edit any page.
Like wise we can also have Site.PreferenceBakup if the default gets corrupt or
non working. Simply setprefs=Site.PreferenceBakup

by the way... how does "editform=" option work?. I mean in which version was
this introduced and where is this documented (coz I tried in beta45 and does
not seem to work), I think this is a good feature anyhow :-)
