the external editor action, with the help of a locally installed
script, should effectively open a "tunnel" with your preferred editor,
so that each time you save the document, the helper script will
actually build up an HTTP request and send it back to the MoinMoin
action that in turn will save the page.

Your browser should be configured in such a way that when it receives
a document with a content type like "application/x-moin-edit", it'd
launch the helper app ("moineedit.py"): the latter will consult it's
configuration file to find out which editor is most appropriate (keep
in mind that the original work is Zope-centric, where each document
may have it's own preferred editor).

Hope this helps,
please recontact me if the problem persists,
ciao, lele.
