When the engine's Unicode implementation is completed so it can do 
meaningful work with it, I'm sure it will.  Probably won't be long now - 
the team seem to be making good progress on the final stages of Unicode 
work:

But looking at the bigger picture, the engine supports an 
emacsKeyBindings property and the old MetaCard script editor supported 
that along with an option to use any external editor - I wonder what it 
would take to have these in LC's script editor?
