Yes! +1

Ideally the editor that is invoked by the middle button should
include pamphlet/noweb-aware extensions to handle "tangle" and
"run" such as on the Pamphlet pages on the Wiki.

I agree. We should scrap those old .spad files and replace
them with pamphlet files and the corresponding dvi's. Tim has
