The Octave project is currently in the process of creating a GUI and are
(http://www.riverbankcomputing.co.uk/software/qscintilla/intro) in their
editor. Perhaps we should consider a long-term switch to using this as
well. I suspect there will be existing VHDL, Verilog-A etc. syntax files
I would also suggest getting rid of the separate editor component
altogether (not the TextDocument). We could always make Tools->Text
Editor open a TextDocument tab instead.
