I also consider it a plus. And I'm not weird, just very opinionated.  :-)

What I would consider ideal would be for all editor functions to be 
exposed via an interface usable by any language.  Perhaps when run by 
TM, commands would get a fourth open file descriptor that could write 
commands to and read output from TM.  Or perhaps TM could create a 
Unix-domain socket or named pipe that anything could read and write.  Or 
perhaps it could expose AppleScript objects.  Yes, I said it.  
AppleScript.  I never touch the stuff myself, but there are bindings so 
you can use AppleScript objects from any real scripting language. If 
nothing else, the 'osascript' shell command can be run.
