Hi guys,

We did embed Scintilla in previous versions of PIDA, but the 
Py-GTK-Scintilla bindings are incomplete, broken and unmaintained. I can 
probably dig you up the patches we used at the time to get them working, 
but still nothing could prevent the odd segfault. Thinking about it 
though, WingIDE use a derivation of the bindings, and although Wing is 
closed source, I suspect these bindings would have to be opened, so 
maybe talk to them.

In summary, I am not sure scintilla is the way to go. If you want a 
notepad+ type editor, have a look at MooEdit, which is actually 
integrated into PIDA already.

Scite is also a possibility. If it is embeddable, and has a decent 
remote procedure protocol, then it will be straightforward to embed.
