It would be nice to add a "Last edited by" link that shows when a post was last edited that would then take you to the post history showing all of the edits if more than one edit was made.

For example, "Last edited by Amaury. Today at 1:17 PM." (Or in XenForo's case, "A moment ago.")

And if this is another thing that's already implemented, then call me a fool! :)

This is possible, its a moderator only action (can most likely be controlled via Permissions) since it shows exact edit times and exactly who made the edits.

Of course. Only staff could see the link while the rest of the users could only see the link to the post history for their own posts. For posts that don't belong to users, the "Last edited by" would simply be plain text.

I think that set up becomes quite a bit more complicated, and since teh Post Edit history is more or less designed as a moderator tool, it makes sense to keep it the way it is right now. You may be able to modify it with permissions / display to change it so everyone can view edit histories.
