It is possible - QScintilla exposes the whole of the low level Scintilla API. 
The thing to do is to look at the original Scintilla/SciTE sources to see how 
it's done.

However...this is high on Detlev's list of things he wants to add to eric, so 
we have been discussing how an easier high level API should work. I think he 
has thought about it more than I have, and I am currently sitting on some 
proposals from him which I hope to find time to review next week.
