Button "Ask question" on edit pages

Please consider moving the button "Ask question", encountered on edit pages, to a better location.

From other wikis background, I'm very used to click on the "rightmost button", which is usually "Show changes". So, on translatewiki I keep clicking by error on "Ask question"! I guess I'm not the only in this situation.

If I may give a suggestion, this link could be made floating to the right, and not styled as a button, but as a link with a decorative "help" icon (i.e. " Ask question").

Personally, I have no motivation (nor time) to work on the edit page view as I consider that a legacy interface. If someone else wants to write a patch, I can review it though.

The Translate extension is more optimised for keyboard users. Personally I always use alt-shift-v so I've never suffered from this problem.
