Sure, I would like to have such an interface in ktexteditor and I would like 
it if somebody could talk a look at the katepart in kdelibs to add that 
function to it (which would show the difficulties in reality of adding such 
stuff to some part and perhaps give some new impression about how the 
interface should look) ;) (but even interface alone would be good step ;)
