Well, one of the cool things about the edit_fns concept from my
standpoint is that producers and consumers can be plugged together
more or less arbitrarily, and you can write shims which accept calls
from an arbitrary producer and relay those calls (modified, perhaps)
to an arbitrary consumer. For that to continue to be the case, you
have to code producers to the least common denominator of the
consumers.

But maybe that flexibility isn't necessary. I don't have a great feel
for critical that aspect of editors is to the subversion design.
