I'm not sure any of this is really the point of Mousepad. Nick might
disagree, but for my part, I like mousepad tiny as it is. When I need
multiple buffers, source code highlighting etc. I run (g)vim. Each task
as an adapted tool, I'm not sure it makes sense to bloat Mousepad just
to redo (badly) something which already exists.

My 2 cents :)
