Yep. Promising concept. Not the one I would go for, I prefer clean
stuff, but I know people that are used to editors with thousands
of symbols and palettes under windows and find the TeX-on-OSX
situation lame.  I beg to differ (there are areas where we could
profit - more robust and quicker editing engines, but I am horrified
by those palettes).
