I simply need a editor, which could receive parameters and put the 
values in specified locations. Draw rects and images... :)

For instance:

def(_self, test="just a test"):
	drawString(10,20, test)

Andy, why don't we call the Zope users and Python programmers to help us 
and provide a open-source tool?
