comments out of the text

Hi all,

I'm fairly new to jEdit. I'm using it to experiment with edition in a general way, because I'm familiar with Java and because it is open-source with lots of plug-ins. I've just developped a basic plug-in and started browsing the existing ones.

I would like to use comments (or annotations) like there are in Word: not in the document, but about the document, displayed in a hover or dockable view. Apart from MS products (Word, XL) I don't really know any other editor that does this. I think maybe some PDF viewers do, or ebooks.

(caution: "comment" and "annotation" are not used here in the Java meaning)

Is there any plug-in that may do this?
Is there any plug-in that looks like going that way?

The only plug-in I found that looked vaguely interesting was TaskList which looks interesting because it shows extracted text in a dockable view. But none that addresses my particular issue.

Any help appreciated!
(otherwise this could become a feature request, but I'm not sure, I'm only experimenting here)
