Re: Change #1 Considered Harmful

I guess I think it's weird to have an interface that supports the
feature of "I decided not to use this interface." Usually, if you're
not sure you want to perform an operation yet, you just don't perform

You'd better document the fact that an editor constructor should never
actually *do* anything, and that all actual work must take place after
the begin_edit call.

Perhaps malloc should be changed to return a function/baton you have
to invoke if you decide you actually want the memory. That way, you
can allocate all the memory you'll need at the beginning of the
program, and then only actually really get it when you need it.
