OK, that's good, although I really don't want to hold up the 1.2
release. If Mike fixed these plugins by Wednesday I'd be happy to
include them but otherwise I think we should just continue telling users
that the new plugins only work against the refactored editor.

FWIW, after rolling back the Editor refactor we found that many of the
Editor issues were actually caused by orthogonal changes in dijit (to
Toolbar, Button, etc.) which we subsequently fixed. I'm not sure that
the refactored Editor is that unstable (but need to test more). IIUC,
FWIW, Cougar and Dustin are using the new Editor code for production sites.

Yes, almost all the updates to dijit.Editor made after the rollback have
been merged to dojox.Editor. Not so many, but there were a few.
