Since undeletion is basically undoing another admin's action, it would be nice
if it were possible to enter an edit summary when undeleting anything. This
would then show up in the deletion log, along with the edit summaries for
deleting things. E.g. "history undeletion", or "VFU consensus" or "misreading of
Presently admins tend to perform a null edit after undeletion in order to
present their reasoning, if they want. But those don't appear in the deletion
log, of course.

This patch mixes UI code into the backend; needs a little work.
The UndeleteForm class should be checking the request for variables, and then pass the
reason if given on to the backend class PageArchive. PageArchive could be used in a
batch operation or other specialized case, so you should not assume that $wgRequest
will belong to an UndeleteForm in the other class.
It would probably be good also to be consistent about the form field naming; this form
seems to be using mostly plain names, so 'reason' might be better than 'mReason'.
