:-)  It might be a pain in the ass, but it sounds like the most
edifying (and probably the most fun) part of the process to me.

Reading up on what's involved, getting a basic editor put together
sounds actually quite easy.  A few tens of hours of work, maybe. 
Making the editor feature-rich, extending it in a substantial way,
well doesn't sound hard just work-intensive.

Thanks for the pointers though...
