Description

Clicking "reply" to a comment in Trac erases the current content of the comment text area with the quoted comment. I think it'd be better if the quoted comment were appended or prepended to the current text area content rather than overwriting.

Of course I don't know if other things are changing unbeknownst to the user (new text area entirely, different IDs, etc.), but even if so, I think the above should be possible.

Replying on Trac resubmits the page. So we really don't have much of a choice here.

This perhaps can be something filed upstream, but every set of reply buttons is its own <form>, so it's not easy to do without leveraging JS. I'm not really sure why it's not just one big form, but I digress.

Because it resubmits the page, the back button should be sufficient in most browsers. (Just tested it here.)
