You mean recompile TextFrames.Mod with 
   OpenCmd="Desktops.OpenDoc"   ?
Does that cause Desktops.OpenDoc to be the default editor at boot-up ?
Linux-ETH-Oberon also has NOT Edit.Open as default.
Which also has many disadvantages:
* can't do TextMail.Cite *
* has problems with News.Send  *  and/or TextMail.Send *
* and unwanted auto-indent is most annoying.

I find it best just to accept that text needs to be moved between the
different 'editors' and formats.

Well I don't want to study regular expressions.

BTW an example of the common need for a quick, multi-find/replace
is to 'fix' your mime-posts by ET.Do DeMime , where file: DeMime is 
a script to find/replace-translate:
'=20' -> ''
'=3D' -> '='
