I've just launched a new drupal site at http://www.bikeweb.com using 4.5 
As part of this I wanted to include my minimalist html editor. It's all 
worked but I had to hack common.inc slightly. So here's a couple of 
suggestions for making extending form_textarea() easier.

1. Textarea, pre really needs to be between the title and textarea of 
the form_item. textarea extensions are very likely to add a toolbar and 
this really ought to be hard against the top of the textarea rather than 
floating above the title.

2. I need a way of adding extra $attributes as part of the module code 
and can't see an easy way of doing this without making $attributes 
global. Suggestions?
