Is this just for editing?  The "new" vi has split-screen capabilites as
does, of course, emacs.  How would this functionality differ from these,
or from two xterms under X (discounting overhead for X ;-)

That sounds kinda useful...  Maybe a core/swap monitor?  Updated every
second or something?  Would an X program do just as well?
