Heh, GUI editors have been around since at least 1984, if not older, which
makes them older than half the programmers in the world.
I'm not sure what an *un*traditional GUI-based editor would look like. Maybe
one that used a ribbon-based interface, like MS Office? Or perhaps Leo?
[My resolution for 2017: stop talking about Leo and actually download the damn
thing and try it out.]
