    Description

      1. When user wants to change block settings - display the form in a modal popup instead of the separate page
      2. For some blocks when configuration is important, add a second step to the "Add block" popup that will allow to configure a block before it is created - for example, HTML block, tags, glossary blocks - they are useless unless they are configured
      3. (maybe) Allow to edit block header inline
      4. (maybe) Display permissions and "check permissions" in a popup - navigating from the permission pages back to the page where the block was edited is confusing and sometimes does not work (see MDL-26675 for example)

      The big challenge here is that block editing relies on permissions checks and additional setup that is done on each page and it is very difficult to implement in WS. But I think I have some ideas about how to do it
