TinyMCE (the Rich Text editor) has a custom context menu (the menu that appears if you right click). It only has a "Link" option in it by default, so users who prefer to right-click and paste are going to be at a loss. We want to add the "Paste" option, which doesn't actually work in a lot of browsers due to restricted clipboard access, but which will at least pop up an error telling the user how to paste with their keyboard.
We also want to add the horizontal line option, because why not!
And a paste button on the left side of the toolbar, because we do love us some scope creep (This may or may not be the best placement for it, but it is easily moved in response to feedback.)
