I would infer from the responses to your original question that you probably got 
what the list has to offer on THE. It does not seem to be a very active project. 
If you can not find a mailing list or an IRC channel, you may well be stuck with 
figuring it out. I worked on SPF and wrote a monitoring tool for it back in the 
day. Kate (KDE) and TextPad (Winders) have most if not all the features I can 
remember as being things other editors do not generally have, e.g., block 
editing and collapsing code blocks.
