before/after editaction

Greetings all,

During the very constructive meeting in
we came to a conclusion that we want events that fire before after user
editing action and execCommand take place.  Let us call these events
beforeEditAction and afterEditAction respectively.

>From Ehsan's blog:

Can we add these events?
