Sounds okay. Except it might be nice to spawn "Notepad" or "gvim" sort
of thing, which means it doesn't matter if you have a tty.
(Though from my experiments of using gvim as my cvs editor, it doesn't
work because gvim seems to detach from the calling process, so it looks
like the editor just returns empty.)
It might make more sense to have a "--no-editor" flag, so that emacs or
some other ide can force the behavior instead.
