I recognize that that's what you're saying, but I fail to
understand how that is a loss of freedom when you are still free
to use another editor, or even many other editors.  You may not
be free to modify Zend Studio, but you're certainly not locked
into using it exclusively, so if you feel the need to modify your
editor, by all means, use a different one.
