Actually very useful, you can look at some text/code as a reference for
creating code. e.g.

* view SQL table definition while coding a class, HTML form, etc.
* view HTML form while coding PHP class to receive it
* view C++ class declaration while coding implementation of class


This is probably the feature I felt the loss of most, when jumping from
Notepad++ on Windows to Geany on Linux. (However, it did encourage me to
write some more scripts for code generation... :-)
