You wrote something about HIG and tab width - can you explain further?

I don't know if it has catched your sight but some weeks ago I found
a segfault where undo/redo after 'Save As' failed. I fixed it with
an assert because there was a null pointer access; the segfaults were gone,
but undo/redo wasn't possible after 'Save As' either.
I'm glad I do not have to dive into this further, this action stuff seemed
very complicated to me (can't say whether it was hackish or not).

Now I'm quite eager to see how they've done that!

Yes, if we have to possibility to stuff regexes into it (Vim has a similar
approach w/ a wordlist for fast highlighting and regexes for things that cannot
be done by simple word matching) we haven't lost much of my previous work on

Sure, shouldn't be a problem.
