Newer tried 'idle' nor Python. If time permits I will look into it and

There is load and save functionality. But yet to decide what to do about
non-serializable variables. Clear functionality should be easy to add.
Will properly do it soon.

Maybe, I was to broad when I said no UI critiques. I just did not want
people to just complain about obvious shortcomings. I know they are
there. As I wrote, it is a prototype. The interface is not well thought
out yet. But if anybody writes about a (obivous) shortcoming and helps
in "correcting" it, it is just fine. Just like you helped by providing
good pointers (gtksourceview stuff).

Thanx for pointer.
