Wow,

building a working text-editor to be used as main driver is kicking my ass right now, the depth of selection wizardry, like where the cursor ends up after text operations, is endless.

A lot of subtle things I've never really noticed until they were gone.

@neauoire once I added a repl mode to my editor I was really surprised how difficult it was to enforce that the prompt was read-only. so many bugs over something that felt so small!

selection is a beast too for sure, though I had much less trouble with that by sticking with a point+mark model like Emacs.

@technomancy yeah, the difficulty with this is exponential with proportional text XD..
