config change_editor is undiscoverable

Bug Description

At the moment when shelving interactively, the 'edit' function is hidden if you have not defined a change editor.

It would be better if the functionality was shown, and selecting it warned you that you need to configure it. The options I see, are:

Tell the user no change_editor is set and:

1) Prompt them for one to use, and set the variable for them
2) Fall back to the "find_editor" code that we use for commit messages. Not 100% relevant because the editor will be passed 2 files, not just one.
3) Let them know how they can configure it, if they want to do so and come back.

Might be good to add it to the configuration docs as well.
