What this editor need to be useful for template/module developers

1. Preview with ability to display Lua log messages from mw.log()

2. Preview with possibility to specify another page as base (preview template on another page)

3. Preview shouldn't cache docs pages - changes in template doesn't reflect in template docs in preview.

(Workaround: action=submit - but beware that it doesn't preserve the changes you made before switching!)

And as a bonus: possibility to insert nowiki tags.

Why would you want to use this editor, instead of the Extension:CodeEditor, in the Module: namespace?

I was talking about the preview screen (in Article/Template Namespace), not about making this editor available for Module namespace. I may be wrong, but there's no possibility to display Lua log messages on preview screen (or that option is not very visible).
