Do you understand that this is strictly a personal preference?  Some 
people like it, some people don't.  You are certainly allowed to 
"prefer" one over the other, but it's a bit much to ask someone else to 
change their coding style to match yours, unless you are a paying 
client.  ;)

I think that each of these items is specifically talking about the 
Pythonwin editor here.  Is that correct?  I've never had problems 
cutting and pasting code, although I tend to use gvim and a command line 
instead.  What issues do you see?
