I am requesting that a quick edit link be added to the media in the media library like what is on the posts page. I would like to quickly be able to edit titles, alts, and captions at least.

Was just going to create a ticket for this! It's a shame this didn't make it in the recent media updates in 3.5.

Would be very helpful to be able to quickly edit titles, and captions etc. without having edit individual media items.

Looks like it still needs a patch.

This would be very useful, especially now that Media items support taxonomies. If I'm reading this right, the inline_edit() function from class-wp-posts-list-table.php will need to be modified and integrated with class-wp-media-list-table.php. inline_edit() is 400+ lines of who knows what.

Is there anybody who's a little more familiar with these files than I am who would like to tag team this?
