[TYPO3-templavoila] Localizing content from page module - two clicks necessary?

i had a session with a client, and one problem the editors where having, 
was the two clicks that are needed to first create and then edit the 
newly localized content.
When the page to localize contains "a lot of" elements  (number depends 
on the user of course), there was quite some confusion which element was 
just localized and also lots of scrolling involved on a smaller screen. 
The first idea was to add an anchor to the localize-link, but i think 
that would need a core patch to make it work, because the fragment would 
get lost after the first redirect. I found a nasty hack to "read" the 
fragment, but i do not want to implement that. [1]

The second idea was to directly open the edit form after creating the 
element. The list module already has such a function: The form is shown 
after two redirects (first tce_db.php redirects to the list module which 
checks a GET param and so does an additional redirect). That should be 
easy to adapt for TVs mod1.

Is there any interest in such a patch or am i missing some already 
present functionality / helping config setting?
I can imagine some "edge cases" where you just would want to copy the 
record without further editing, so probably this should be configurable 
from pageTS or userTS (or even with a checkbox in the top bar).
