I'd like to see a -w flag to wait until the window is closed before 
continuing. This allows the editor to be used for editing svn commit 
comments (or any other task where the editor specified by the EDITOR 
environment variable is used).

Install from within the app is cute, but not (in my opinion) necessary, 
but there probably should be an installer so permissions are handled 

My 2 cents.
