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.
