yesno, please don't forget to count available lines and ensure one remains ;-)

other than this, you're imho /very/ right about overloading the function 
(maybe the user just want's to clean and enter a complete new line. the ctrl+a 
or triple-click is nice, but not obvious and ths d*** f*** touchpads make 
selecting a whole line really unconveniant :-(

about the ui clutter:
why not just make the appereance dependent on "mouseOver"?
this will lead to even less clutter than hiding it for empty lines, users are 
used to ui (look) changes on hover and you cannot click it w/o hovering the 
editline anyway...
