Definitely not!  GtkSCText is a (rather ugly) kludge.  I needed some
stuff in the text widget, for the GtkEditor widget.  I patched the
text widget for some time, but the VDKBuilder people got tired of this
(can't say I blame them) and Ionutz Borcoman wrote a small program for
generating a new widget - gtksctext - created by patching the text
widget and renaming must of the functions/variables.  So GtkSCText is
really just an automatically generated widget, based on GtkText.  And
it's rather broken in many places.

The GtkSCText in gIDE is, I think[1], a hacked up version of one of
these generated sctext widgets.  I'm not sure how stable that one is,
but I doubt that it's a useful replacement for the text widget.
