Clearly the biggest problem with the split system is that of defining untranslates in situ. That's the top priority. It can probably be kludged to work in generic text editors, but I'm worried that it'll have the potential to get pretty ugly -- especially if we're jumping around the document and Plover has no way of seeing where we are with respect to what's on the text editor's screen. Also, setting * to delete last stroke (an indefinite number of times) is tricky unless you have a way of accessing previous strokes. I'll have to think on this.
