    Obviously you're ignoring the capability in advanced GUI systems to embed
different programs into themselves.  Take a look at BeOS where you could embed
virtually anything into anything else.  

    We'd still have editors.  We'd just choose which one was embedded into the
application instead of having to go through the external calls we should do
now.
