I started to code this IDE to learn more about reflection and how to create
workspaces, transcripts etc. but VisualGST is a pretty big project and its
codebase was pretty big so I decided to code one from scratch.

We can share code between the IDEs, I guess. I'll choose MIT or GNU or
something like that (any suggestions?). And now that I know more about these
stuff I might be able to contribute to VisualGST in the future.
