I'd personally prefer if one adequate scripting language 
were chosen, and all customizations were handled in that
language.  Providing a generic scripting language plug-in 
is a *lot* of extra overhead for a small increase in 
functionality.  (X)emacs is the only thing I use lisp for, 
but I can follow a few example customization files, and 
cut and paste what I need, without *reallY* understanding 
the details of lisp programming.

Ideally, I think the user would be able to pick which 
editor component style would be used for their mega-edit 
widgets (emacs, vi, pico, nedit, etc.).  Here is where 
you'd be able to customize your extensions accordingly.
