I would love one.

If you you proceed, it would be nice if the applet allowed pluggable
backends. In this way, one applet would exist that would allow the
user to select one of a number of different editors to use (which
should keep the Brief users, the Emacs users, the Notepad users and the
Vi users all happy - provided they can be bothered implementing their
own backend).
