 When writing a new page, it is almost certain that you'll want to type the
 title first, hence WordPress focusing the title field. However, when
 editing a page it is almost certain that you'll want to edit the content
 first, which means that focusing the title field in this case is annoying
 and unnecessary.

 one hits enter just as the focus is stolen, which ends up submitting the

 This patch makes it so that the title field is only focused when writing a
 new page.
