I like it too. However it's far from being ready for anything more than 
comments/bbPress editor. Been following several jQuery based editors, 
all have little more than the default browser contentEditable functionality.

This one is definitely more polished than most but still lacks a lot of 
things. For example: no plugins, no way to extend it other than hack 
into it, very minimal APIs, try copying and pasting something from 
another browser tab, then look at the HTML. And a big one: no undo/redo 
for all actions?
