New Add-on: Console text editing improvements

-you can click anywhere in the line and the cursor follows
-insert anywhere some text or delete it (del and backspace modified), by selection too
-cut selection Ctrl+x
-select whole line Ctrl+A
python code should be enough for the moment

This is awesome! Why not submit it as a patch to be integrated into master?

I don’t know how to do

https://wiki.blender.org/wiki/Process/Contributing_Code
The change doesn’t seem to be large enough for an add-on, so the source code is at release/scripts/startup/bl_ui/space_console.py & source/blender/editors/space_console/console_ops.c

Upload a patch, keep improving it using arcanist [1] & add a reviewer.
Feel free to ask for help at https://blender.chat
