Summary: MediaWiki messages should say "edit" not "create" if
                    the message exists
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Normal
         Component: General/Unknown

Currently when you access a MediaWiki message in a default install, the initial
tab will read "create" because the page itself doesn't exist (it has no row in
the page table). However, if you click "create", it will pre-fill the textarea
with the default message and will appear, for all intents and purposes, to
already exist.

If a valid MediaWiki message is accessed (that is, a MediaWiki message that
corresponds to an entry in a messages file), the tab should read "edit". This
is more intuitive. If the message isn't registered (e.g.,
MediaWiki:ffdjsifojsdf), the tab should read "create".

This caused confusion to a user in #mediawiki.
