I went with "Its all text" for that reason.  It puts a little "edit" button at
the bottom right corner of each window.  Its not nearly as configurable but
that little bit of convenience is nice.  It also flashes the textarea when it
updates from the external editor.

Also I think there's a way in MozEx to make it a hotkey rather than menu drill
