[stringtemplate-interest] SttingTemplate language editor

Hi. I should have mentioned that I work in Visual Studio. I have also 
thought about writing an editor based on a Syntax Editor Control, there are 
a few out there.  But I a) have not experience in this area and b) know that 
without an AST (or similar - as I say I am on foreign ground here) it would 
be hopeless.

Still here's hoping we can resolve it soon.
