First of all, I don't think we have enough data to determine which
editor is being used by developers. How did you come up with the roughly
50/50 estimate?  I am sure we need a editor for development but I might
be using Eclipse or even Anjuta? IMO, it can be listed as a optional
package in the group and not more than that.
