Well I think it's better to not mutaate messages then. There is a simple preview on the web interface and one can always post a followup.

Maybe it's possible to implement edit as posting a new reply with the edited content. Then at least the web interface could visually merge those.

That would be perhaps the best solution if the previous post gets deleted, otherwise the NTTP client will show both messages.
