 From my POV, scintilla is pretty slow. Especially on windows where 
scrolling is painfully slow, but also for opening the auto-completition 
list (although I remember it was way faster some month ago, so it could 
be my system(s)). I don't know whether gtksourceview does better.

Other than that, I don't see much of a point for changing. But I do 
think supporting both would be awesome (even if via a compile time 
switch only) :)
Best regards.
