I don't want to sound like a heretic, but has the implementation of the
core of Textadept in Qt been considered? Qt provides a cross-platform
way of creating native-looking interfaces, and the Scintilla component
is available in Qt through the QScintilla project, and is kept
up-to-date [1]. It should also solve the "shortcut keys" and "native
file open" "issues"...

Translating the 2000 LOC of src/textadept.c should not be that hard (I
hope :). I may actually attempt such conversion when I have more time
(which will likely be during the summer break).
