I don't know that this needs to be a change to the default template. On several occasions I've taken the basic default template and modified it for (a) no side menu at all during editing, or (b) a right side rather than left side menu, and (c) no side menus, ever. These were all simply implemented as new templates. The advantage of a right side menu is that for the hard-of-sight who often use large fonts, the body of the page isn't sent packing off stage right, the menu is. There's obviously a good and a bad to that. Another alternative would be to use headers or footers containing more links — how appropriate this would be depends on the intent and audience of your wiki.
IMO, the solution to the ''Save'' button at the bottom (i.e., the form textarea is too tall, which only shows up during editing sessions where the edit form height doesn't change) is to alter the textarea height so that it appears on most screens. This of course depends on screen size, browser, browser window size, OS, choice of JSPWiki editor, font size, etc. but it's such a simple fix for the majority of users that it seems a shame to make any substantial changes to what is not really broken. All you have to do is change the value of the {{rows}} attribute on the form's <textarea> in the editors/plain.jsp file from the default of 25 rows to a smaller value. I note that there's a {{prefEditAreaHeight}} variable being set in ~EditContent.jsp (whose source value is the commonheader.jsp) but I don't see where that's actually used. Promising name though.
