I think it's not realistic, except very limited pieces of code, e.g.
syntax support.

I'd rather have a well-tested (as part of MC) editor with less features
than an feature-rich editor that crashes in the newly merged code.

Also mcedit is more careful about resources - the syntax rules are not
loaded if syntax highlighting is disabled.  It's very handy on embedded
devices with limited memory (yes, I work with the devices where it
