It's already there. You get to edit your post as many times as you see fit; you're even denied
the opportunity to publish without a separate preview first. Fix any errors before anyone else
sees them.

Once you've published the post, I consider it a very desirable feature that you can't edit it
-- that way, the discussion follows chronologically instead of people going back and changing
what they said.

Editing should only be allowed as long as no one replied yet, and as long as it's not too long
ago. That way silly typo's can be fixed (or embarrassing posts removed), but history not
