Allow changes to be saved even when ticket has been modified

Notice: This plugin is no longer needed in Trac 1.0 and later. Equivalent functionality has been added in trac:#7145.


A plugin that replaces the default trac ticket validation with a version that, after showing you the warning (Warning: Sorry, can not save your changes. This ticket has been modified by someone else since you started), allows you to save anyway.

The vast majority of times this error is signaled, both changes are additive and can be safely applied so lets not force people to jump through hoops unnecessarily.

This is what happens when someone made a comment while you were commenting:
This is what happens when someone has edited the description. If you save you will lose their change (so go edit it back in)
