<g> from the work I've done on glx2 I'd second that. The IDE has way too
many hooks that need to be trapped in a frontscript in order to use a
<different> editor from the built-in one. And it's gotten worse, not
better, with LC 7/8. I was rather hoping that the IDE would evolve to a
plugin framework that would allow you to swap individual elements, but
it's probably wishful thinking on my part. Time to look at rIDE again.

Additionally, RubyMine has not only this, but some great refactoring
features that let you, for instance, change the number or order of
parameters to a handler and then update all instances of calls to that
handler anywhere in any part of the project.
