There's ditz edit, but that generates a log message. I've just added an
issue requesting a --silent flag to turn off logging, so that would be
useful in this case.

That seems like a different use case to me. Personally I consider YAML
to be editor-friendly, but in general I'm not adverse to other input
mechanisms besides what's there now. So, make a proposal.

If you can come up with a default that satisfies everyone, sure. I tend
to be about 50% between bugs and features. We could do something like
"default to the last type the user picked", and then store that
somewhere... dunno.

With tab completion I don't see this being that big of a deal. And in
issue titles, comments and descriptions, the issue names have to be
identifiable (because we replace them with issue ids within the yaml),
and breaking consistency between "what I type on the commandline" and
"what I type in the issue itself to refer to another feature" seems bad.
