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).

I think if you have a look at Editor.wx.lua Example contained in P.Winwoods 1.2 wxLua download you will find it to be very far along the way to do just that. wxLua incorporates the Scintilla text control in a nice way.
