I did try both PlainText and Nebulous Notes, along with Dropbox.  It *is* a bit confusing how everything interacts.  But the main problem is that these really are more like the Notes apps.  For example, neither have an incremental search or a find function that I could see.

So I may, for the while, treat the iPad as a read-only device.  GoodReader steadily improves and has a find function.  And I'm certain there will be a reasonable editor (Textastic?) soon that can handle large files with search/find etc.

In the mean time, Dropbox+TextMate is way, way cool!
