Also, you haven't addressed the question of editors requiring  
terminal windows, if I read the patch right.  At the price of  
spawning a useless terminal when an X11-aware editor is specified,  
you can prefix "xterm -e " to the selected editor (or, perhaps  
better, use the existing terminal preference).
