The reason people laugh at pico is that its default configuration is to hard-wrap lines of text over 80 characters, thus reaking havoc with a variety of configuration files, program source, and other machine readable text. Then people say, "hey, how come XXX doesn't work?", and it turns out the answer is "you used pico!".

I forgot all about that. And this:

bbedit -w to open BBEdit and have it wait until you are done to send the contents back to the shell. You can then "EDITOR=bbedit -w" in your shell source.

is particularly cool.

You didn't mention that if you've got the BBEdit Unix Tools installed (the installer's in the BBEdit Extras folder), you can invoke BBEdit from the command line.
