You may well be right, I just got into the habit of typing indents required

Perhaps you could use the wxWindows framework in which to build SciTE? Wx
has zlib and other libs built in, along with expat etc. Apart from a
horrible crash problem I have with the document view framework I have I'm
finding it a very nice library to use. I know this probably goes against my
small executable preference but it would make scintilla easier to bind to
Lua, through the wxStyleTextCtrl.

I would love to help (I did look at that many months ago) but I am currently
moving jobs (and countries!) and I would like to concentrate on the version
of VisLua I have started (for which I will soon be looking for volunteers
:0) in the little time I have available. This will have Lua scripting and
editing similar to MSDev.

Keep up the good work.
