I agree with the comment so far about the need for a more obvious way to 
make the personal commentary writable and to have multiple personal 
commentaries available.

However, there is a technical detail that will complicate just adding a 
toolbar button for "write". The writable windows are implemented by 
CPlainWriteWindow and CHTMLWriteWindow and the read window by 
CCommentaryReadWindow. This means that you must close the read window 
and open one of the write windows. This will probably look rather ugly 
when it is used. We may need to re-think the writable windows and figure 
out how to combine them into the read window and then just enable the 
write mode of this window. This will not be a quick thing to change.
