Looking at what's in CVS, it looks like there's a step missing.  When you
reject a comment, it puts together an E-Mail to the person who submitted it
saying "Your comment was rejected from PostgreSQL manual" with the body
"Insert a semi-friendly explanation here \n The original comment follows".

Unfortunately, it sends that right away without allowing you to edit it, as
far as I can tell (my language of choice is Perl, not PHP, so I might be
missing something, but it looks clear enough).

I think we need another QuickForm for editing the comment, which may be best
put in a different file than comments.php.

That *should* only happen if you went to the comment-edit.php page without
an "?id=___" somehow...  It doesn't look like this happens in any of the
links (either in the E-Mail or on the form), though.
