It a very nice editor, especially the folding.
However the folding seems wrong for python. For the
following code the comment is folded along with
the for statement?

for i in range(10):
	a=1
#comment
b=2

nice but slow

It's also worth looking at moleskin:
http://www.micampe.it/software/moleskine/
This is written in python using pygtk + scintilla
(so it's similar to SciTE).

Pádraig.
