I don't complain about any other faults of the editor, I rather like it.
A few ideas, however, i have suggested many months or over a year ago.

But the improvement about customization (colors), I would really be
happy to see that. As i said before: based on my Windows 7 color scheme,
those few colors of the editor just don't look good or have too low
contrast towards the Windows environment. I really beg for a color picker.
