If you haven't already, look at the "hierlist" collection. I think what
you want could be built most easily on top of the hierlist classes
(which are text%-based).

In any case..

Definitely. If you don't build on hierlist (or maybe even if you do), I
imagine you'll need to derive subclasses of text% and editor-snip%.
