At that point it would probably need to be a separate preference panel, though, to avoid over-filling the Editor panel. And maybe that's too much UI for one little feature.... hmmm. Not sure.

Yes, something of the sort. However, I think that right now, this would
be a lot of work and much UI for one little feature. In particular (as
elaborated a bit elsewhere in this thread), Tw has no way of
knowing/guessing what kind of file you're working on. Consequently,
you'd have to constantly change either global or per-file settings if
working with different types of files - which is not very convenient
IMO. Anyway, this might change in the future...
