Heya, this is really great!

BTW, it's a bit of a compexity jump, but I wonder if you know about

It has the usual high learning curve of Emacs, so I think your new
editor project is a great entry point.  But the advantage possibly long
term of using Emacspeak is you can do a lot of powerful things (it aims
to be a "complete audio desktop" in emacs) since emacs is so text-based
and has many features.  And of course, you can edit Racket code too :)
So it may be a good future-path moving from your project to this.

You're probably aware already... but there it is, if you aren't!
