is there a way to use the apex:detail tag but have it into enter into edit mode

I'm trying to override the new and edit pages for contracts with a vf page.  The difference between the standard new/edit page and my vf page is that i'll have an extra component that asks for non-contract related data.  Instead of having to recreate the contract page from scratch piece-by-piece i want to simply include the detail page in edit mode and then add my component to the page.  is there a way to accomplilsh this?
The detail component is used to replicate the detail page, which is display only.  Sorry.
