Do somebody know why titles for edit icons have been defined
the way, how they have been set.

function editIcons(
$iconTitle = $this->stdWrap($conf['iconTitle'],$conf['iconTitle.']);

I don't figure what's the idea of using stdWrap for titles.
Normally stdWrap has used creating some HTML-tags around title texts.

Anyway edit icons create a problem.

The language of title attribute are the same as the language of the page.

If pages have edit panel, the language of the edit panels base on the
language of the backend interface. It might be confusing to find
that edit icons and edit panels use different languages.

This seems however to done in purpose - I thought that this was a bug
and I thought that's why make a bug report.

I could put an option to my plugin to select, if the language of titles 
of edit icons base on the language of the page *or* language of the 
backend interface. Does this seem to be reasonable?
