Will appear in 4.3.4. The feature is already coded but is not yet in 
svn due to the server migration in process. It will show up in the 
following days.

It works (will work) with the environment variable XFFM_DEFAULT_EDITOR. 
You just set this to the editor of your choice with mcs manager (if 
running xfce-mcs-manager) or else in the normal way to set envars.
