It seems to me like a good way to solve the hilighting issues people
have put forth recently, would be to set up DrScheme so it can call an
external editor.  Then, the folks who like the emacs online syntax
colouring can have it, and no need to break up DrScheme's very nice
offline version.

(This may already exist, for all I know -- I haven't looked into using
an external editor with DrScheme personally).
