Code Editor

Going forward the code editor is going to be an important part of ConnectBasic. Currently we are using the CodeBox control from CodePlex which is pretty good, but in the mid-term we need to move over to something based on pure WinForms because WPF isn't implemented on Mono.

I think ultimately this is going to need to be a brand new component because from an hour or two of scanning the web, the only projects I've found so far are a) using P/Invoke, b) closed source, c) GPL (ideally I'd like everything to be under Ms-PL and I certainly want to avoid anything as binding as the GPL).

Writing a text editor from scratch really doesn't sound like too much fun, especially when it comes to foreign languages and IMEs - that said, given the above, I'm not sure I see a choice.
