It's written in Lua, so clearly yes.  But I'm not sure if you can have
some ~/.zile.lua (beside the lispy ~/.zile) with your own configs and
settings.  That should be easy to implement, though.

I don't know.  Maybe they could have made it extensible using Guile
instead of writing an own suped-tiny lisp interpreter.  But I guess Zile
isn't meant to be overly extensible.  If you want that, go with emacs.
