as we talked about this on IRC, [[http://drupal.org/project/comment_edited|comment edited]] now has an option to display the "edited by ... message" outside the comment body. For this the templates needs to use
$comment->comment_edited property. It passes the themed edit messages (with the new 1.3 version moderator edits are separated out, thus the plural). The module provides the
theme_comment_edited_messages() theme function, override this if you want to change the way these messages are rendered.
