Does that mean even if authors of some imaginary editor agree to
incorporate their code into Python, the framework that it is built
upon will have to be incorporated into Python also (and eventually
abandoned at original location)?

In this situation I see no way we can provide any decent tools for GUI
like for default editor.

Thanks for support.
