Description

While discussing #31779, I recommended the following:

  1. Move the Editor into the Tools menu, or into Tools > Available Tools. It fits better there anyway: it's not a visual editor for the Appearance, as other things are in the Appearance menu), but the other problem with Plugins > Editor is it's right beside one of the most clicked buttons in the UI (Add New). It's too easy to discover. You could also move the warning messages suggested above into a box on Available Tools. Instead of a warning, it becomes the context for launching the Editor. Plus, what else is going on in that page anyway. :)
  1. To do the above, combine the Theme and Plugin editors into one. Separate the edit dropdown with headings for Theme and Plugins.

@melchoyce recommended splitting this out into a separate ticket (ticket:31779#comment:54).

I just attached what you thought it should be. A little bit confuse about the name, should it be Theme Editor and Plugin Editor?

It would stay labeled "Editor". Thanks for the mockup!
