Having programmed in textareas for a while, it's really quite bad. Yes, you can implement search and replace, and you can do auto-saving, and in-place saves instead of resubmitting, and several other improvements. But I just can't imagine it being good for editing. For mere entry -- like what you might do at the interactive prompt -- it's redeamable.
