Well, two points. First, why does it have to be a "fancy"
tool? The only editors I use basically have syntax highlighting
and code folding (at least, I think that's what it's called.)
There are a lot of other features I'd like to have, but I'm not
about to spend time with a learning curve that needs a full
mountaineering outfit to scale.

Second, what is it about which tools that you don't like?
Be specific, I'm sure that at least some of the tool vendors
would like feedback on their pride and joy.
