Are there plans to release the port of Scintilla to Qt (as a BlackAdder widget yes!) or is the port being kept proprietary? I have a project coming down the pipes where the availability of Scintilla or an editing component of that strength may be what tips the scale in favour of one environment or another. I keep threatening to port it myself, but I am not sure I am far enough down the Qt learning curve to do so efficiently. And if someone else has already done it... :-)

Funny... Last summer I also tried to port Scintilla to Qt. It's
awfully capable, and really nice source. That it's already portable
between Windows and GTK means most of the abstractions have been
done already. Still, it was more work than I had time for!
