In my original message, I was dreaming to script Emacs with Python. In the
resulting thread, someone suggested that Cool Edit could satisfy my dream.

It might not only be a question of age. My feeling is that Cool Edit would
need re-orientation for becoming able to grow as featureful as Emacs is.
But once again, please do not take it as a criticism against Cool Edit.
Not at all. I would warmly recommend it to friends working on X, as being
friendly, supporting Latin-1 and UTF-8 out of the box, and Python scriptable.
I also found the display to use especially legible default fonts.
