Good points, Dieter. So, for 4.0, we could have these options, as 
suggested in the RFE:

- On click (current behavior),
- On double click,
- Disable.

But, my initial message said "So, for 4.0, I suggest to switch to some 
other action to activate grid editing."

So, should we switch the _default_ action needed to enter in grid editing?
