[plt-scheme] MrED - scrollbars

Sadly, there is no way in our GUI library to put controls (like buttons
and check boxes) under the control of a scrollbar.

Instead, it sounds like you would be better off using the editor
hierarchy. You can use one main text% in an editor-canvas% for the
entire table and then add editor-snip%s (with embedded text% objects)
for the elements of the table.
