yes, something like that... I don't know how to get the content of a
textbox but it should be really simple.
just make a temporary file, put the current content of the textbox in
it, launch $EDITOR and read the content of the tempfile when $EDITOR
exits. That's it. maybe one could even make a user script...
and, because it's a function, you can assign it to $keybinding or
$mousebinding. Would be great if somebody could make such a patch or
tell me how to get the content of a textbox so I could write one

Kind regards
