GNOME/Web browser Integration

Something that I haven't seen _any_ GNOME editor do, is integrate well
with web browser text-input fields.

In Mac OS X with TextMate and Safari, you press Apple-Space and a new
editor frame pops up and the existing text from the text-input widget
is copied into this new file, where you can edit it with all the
luxury that comes with a real text editor (like robust autosaving, or
syntax checking, and all the other stuff emacs is insanely great for)
and then when you close the file, its contents is copied back into the
text-input widget.

This makes editing a Wikipedia page that's dense with wiki markup very
pleasant to edit.

My friend suggested emailing features suggestions like this here, if
this is the wrong venue, apologies and I hope someone will point me in
the right direction :-)
