It would be useful to be able to edit a file directly
in the line we wish. I know I can launch an editor, but
now isn't possible to indicate the editor that I want
go directly to a exact line. For example, if when I
select Edit ... with right button, there was a
posibility to pass to the editor an additional
information with the line number, this could be done.

Imagine you admit a syntax similar to:

vi +n%n %f

where %n correspond to the line number where you
clicked with right button, and %f is the name of the
file you want to open. This syntax is similar to the
one used in many programs to let the user compose the
exact command line to execute. The program only have to
susbtitute the parameters (%n, %f) and put the actual
values in that places.
