Did I see discussion somewhere about adding a fapi #editor property? Is
there an issue for this somewhere or did it stay as discussion?

The big thing for me is that although I really dislike wysiwyg, my users
really need code insertion buttons  (this  is mainly in a forum, they're
generally comfortable with bbcode, and would end up typing it directly into
a wysiwyg for weeks if I switched) - so any editor in core that I wouldn't
immediately switch off on every site would need to have a permanent 'code
view'  - not as a switch in the editor itself, but an admin setting which
removes js representation in the text area itself, so it just deals with
insertion of the actual tags. Something which does what both wymeditor
(which looks like it's moving towards opera/safari support) and jTagEditor
does really. This, again, would reduce the need for quite so many contribs,
and make it very useful for install profiles (on for bloggers, off for
forums - or a mixture of the two for a community site by node type).
