By the time you've added all the complexity and bulk of an XML parser and
zlib, you could have just add Lua to SciTE? Its a good editor but what it
lacks is decent per-language options (eg. indenting is the small in all
languages and must be altered explicitly). A scripting language would make
sc1 a very powerful lightweight editor. You could easily configure it in Lua
and expose and interface for editing like MSDev. (This is what I'm trying to
do with VisLua).
