I want to clarify a bit this "default editor" thing you continue to
gedit born in 1998 as a MDI text editor.
It started to be the "official" GNOME text editor in GNOME 2.0 (if you
see GNOME 1.4, gedit wasn't an official GNOME package).
So, it didn't born as _THE_ GNOME editor, but it was chosen.
I'm quite sick of this discussion. Until I will be the gedit maintainer
it will be a MDI editor, I'm not going to change it to be a SDI one.
I said you I'm available to accept a SDI plugin and a member of the
gedit team also said that he will be happy to implement it if you will
be able to define a good set of requirements.
So, please stop this thread.
