Totally possible - the TextAdept executable exports all the Lua
symbols, so one could write a little extension and link against it.
I just thought it would be a nice thing to have in the core, but it's
not difficult to monkey-patch the Lua code for this task.
Although I have my doubts about it being my next, best editor, it
certainly is fun to play with and does have nice documentation. I've
just done an interactive Lua prompt, pretty straightforward.
