Ahhhhh! Got it, thanks.

Yes¸ that would be nice. FWIW, the issue for me here is not so much
about "which editor" (last night I was even trying experiments within
command-line mred), but rather understanding the different elements
that are "part of a library" -- versus any other support that the
drscheme editor, say, provides invisibly in the background to get
example uses of the libraries to work.
