...I understand, and it's true that a generalized solution would
benefit pd more broadly...but it also introduces a new dependency,
unless we put the editor object/abstraction into gem (or even pd or
zexy) proper...I just think it's seductive to put a editor class in
gem's program or text objects and inherit it, but that's just a
narrow view and wouldn't help others that want text editing but don't
care about gpu programming...

...yeh, and like ben said, it's broken under 0.39+ apparently...I
wonder if it's scrollable, too?
