MLXEditor gets and sets the script property of objects. It assumes the 
script property is just a long string, and it writes the script to a 
file and launches an external editor on the file. Then when the file 
has been modified, MLXEditor reads it and sets the script property of 
the object. MLXEditor doesn't have any concept of fancy formatting. 
Whatever editor being used can of course do formatting or syntax 
coloring if it's capable.
