I agree strongly with Uli, as might be expected 
if you look at the URL cited. 

One simple point: the most developed text editors
in existence are of the same order of complexity -- 
and more crucially, of the same order of 
versatility -- as Stata itself. Stata Corp's 
aims in developing the do-file editors are merely 
to provide a convenient and integrated simple 
editor for small and moderate tasks, in which 
aim I think they have succeeded. I certainly 
use it myself, but not for developing Stata programs.
