Understood. Look forward to your feedback.

Okay, let me bundle that up and post it on the Ceryle web site as
I'm able. This week is quickly queuing up with things...

I've looked into embedding an existing Java-based editor within
the application, but none are sufficiently portable to not require
a substantial rewrite of my own code to do so (and make available
the hooks my application needs), plus I want to distribute under
an Apache-style license and most are GPL, so I've written my own.
It's not particularly fancy and doesn't have syntax hilighting (ie.,
it's not a programmer's editor, it's designed to assist authors, so
I'll add features as appropriate).
