i too would be interested in this

i was hoping plucker would be in the repos, then i could tap directly
into stuff available on, but i can't find it there, or
anywhere on the net

even a simple text editor/viewer would be great. and no, i'm not using
vi, joe, emacs, or anything even vaguely similar
