Re: new Desktop::Editor

One important thing missing from this interface is the 
ability to have and control multiple views of the same data.  
Most editors support this ability, and it is very useful in 
some instances. 

Here's my suggestion:

What is currently Desktop::Editor should be split into two 
interfaces: one representing the text buffer, and one 
representing a view of the text buffer.  The viewer interface 
would have the ui-related functions (scroll_*, etc).  The 
buffer interface would contain the other methods defined in your
Desktop::Editor interface.  In addition, it would contain methods 
for managing views of the buffer, such as (for example) get_active_view(), 
get_views(), and new_view().

Other than that, it is a very nice interface.
