ajaxify post edit

Description

In my opinion the best thing in Gutenberg is the ability to save a post without reloading the page. I think the editor for posts (or pages or CPT) should use a modal, like the attachment editor in the media library, with instant navigation to previous/next post and button for instant close.

Please don't put the post editor into a modal. Editing should be a dedicated screen, and I think having a box to quickly jump to a different post is a good idea, but that should start as a plugin.

Building an enhancement to the editor to save via the REST API without reloading the page also sounds like a good addition, but it should start as a plugin too.

If you'd like to try either one of these ideas, the work can happen in a new repository under https://github.com/ClassicPress-research.

Keep in mind that we are building on top of around 10 years of history of the current editing interface, and fundamental changes are probably going to break a lot of existing plugins.
