Only "bug" I found is that the Ragel lexer is still old-style.

As for the documentation of the user init.lua that was discussed recently
I've attached a patch, startup_doc_initlua,
to put require 'textadept' in the correct position,
I removed the command_entry example, as it leaves one with the
possibility to open
the command entry field but no way to close it.

If you like the idea of putting additional key_commands in init.lua I have
attached no_user_files.patch which includes the correction of the init.lua doc
above and removes the user snippets.lua as well.
As the user files were only announced as part of the 2.2 beta it would
be a good opportunity.
