External Editor Support

I like the sql editor built into DBVis; auto complete and other features work well.  But sometimes I need to make pretty aggressive changes to the script and would like to use a more full featured editor for a few minutes.

I would like a hot key to press while I am in the sql editor that will bring up my choice of editor with the file.  Then when I exit the editor the file is placed back into the built in editor.

Right now I cut and paste the script between the editor and the built in editor; This is okay, but it is tedious and a bit error prone.
