  Let's use Cantor's ScriptEditorWidget which is based on KTextEdit that is available together with KF5. This editor is already used in CantorPart::showScriptEditor(). We can extend this widget/editor later if need and use it for everything script related. For BUG 339127 we'll need to compile this script editor as a stand-alone executable and use it in runCommand(). Let's use maybe cantor_scripteditor as the name for this new executable similar to cantor_rserver, etc.

  R55 Cantor
