What is less convenient? What regexing takes more effort? Do you mean
find/replace in your code type regexing here? I'm sure Allan would be
glad to hear any specific criticisms, and it would probably be possible
Are there any features that could be added to make it more convenient?
I think part of the reason that Python developers don't appreciate
TextMate as much as other coders is that we don't really have all the
ugly syntax that other languages benefit so much from getting an editor
to fill automatically. But I still think building some snippets with
Python idioms could aid python coders considerably. For instance, a
"property" snippet was recently added.
