What is the best way to add php to the edit link?

For example: insert <?php echo of_get_option('dappo_actionbtncolor', 'dappblue' ); ?> into the span tag of <?php edit_post_link( __( 'Edit this', 'mytheme' ), '<span class="edit-link">', '</span>' ); ?>

The easiest way might be to use get_edit_post_link() (Codex ref), which returns just the link, allowing you to use it however you need, according to your purposes.
