Which IMO AbiWord might do nicely. At least one AbiWord person
has expressed interest in helping with development if need be.

Except for margin "markers".

Ah, there's the reason why I never saw any reaction to that

Or at least the lists it handles itself. We might want to
write child classes for them (or does wxSTC UserList do what
we need ?).
