scite & bicycle repair man

SciTE has been my favorite editor for a long time now. Especially for Python code. But there are two things I really miss: refactoring capabilities and a graphical code overview.

A few years ago I integrated refactoring using Bicycle Repair Man. That code has been lost but yesterday I decided to quickly rewrite it. It won't work with files using tabs for indentation (fixed with hack) due to an irritating bug in SciTE (which still hasn't been fixed since I filed it in 2003, unfortunately). Comments and suggestions are welcome!

Download it here: http://bitbucket.org/janto/snippets/src/tip/scitebike.py
See the file for installation instructions.

Now about that graphical code overview...
