I'd recommend doing things like syntax coloring in the background, and
committing the changes after a bit of a delay in typing.
Another possible improvement is to only update the portion of the text window
that is actually *changed* by typing, rather than redrawing the whole text
for every keystroke (I'm not sure whether Shout already does this).
