In Linker.php there is a function called doEditSectionLink that creates edit links. It supports some nice hooks for changing the value of the edit link, but doesn't allow for advanced modification like adding a comment link next to the edit link or changing the HTML of the edit link.
Since skins inherit from SkinTemplate which inherits from Skin which inherits from Linker, users could override this function in their skin. However, the function is currently private which apparently prevents it from being overridden. If it were protected instead of private the problem would be solved.
I agree, it should be protected. Changed in r24342.
Not exactly sure what I was talking about up there. The hooks do allow you to completely customize the edit links but thanks anyway.
