Sounds like a worthwile idea. I just did the Textadept template for the
base16-builder[1], but I agree that it should be fairly easy to build a
gtkrc template. Maybe a separate repo for these would be better, because
at the moment you can clone the complete repo into ~/.textadept/themes
which I think is quite useful.

More generally, maybe the status bar could be a text buffer as well. I
think many editors have them editable and stylable that way.

Mitchell, have you ever considered this?
