    Naha posted the question after I asked him about the topic of editor
    windows in CLIM. I have experiented with solutions quite similar to what
    has been posted, but I never managed to get the right thing. Unless I am
    mistaken, both Colin's and Scott's solutions suffer (at least under
    Genera 8.3) from the rubout redisplay problem, as well as from other,
    more subtle glitches. 
This I believe.

			  Also, it does not provide commands like ctrl or
    (less importantly) meta editing commands.

But this I do not believe.  I just tried it and a whole mess of the
control/meta-cokebottle commands worked just fine.

    If anyone has written anything like such an editor, I'd love to hear
    about it, otherwise I'll work on it some more. I do think that it would
    be a valuable tool and should be in the standard CLIM library. How do
    CLIM folks feel about this?

I'm all for it.  It's not trivial, though.
