I talked to Owen about this, and he basically said that there's an
issue with Buttonsnap in that its shooting for a moving target as far
as the TinyMCE version in WordPress, so really any sort of library for
this kind of development needs to go into WordPress core, because
trying to get the plugin to hit that moving target is just too much
