Our text editors are amazing pieces of software development, but I've never
liked the extension model of building applications inside the editor. Instead,
I'd like to develop applications in isolation and add support for modal text
editing primitives with a library.
Are there libraries that specialize in adding modal text editing support without
attempting to be full text editor applications? GNU readline comes to mind.
