File association requires write to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, so that means it
requires administrative rights to do it:


While SciTE is "good" to getting started, lot of users will follow
tutorials about using things like NetBeans, RubyMine, Aptana, etc.

Personally I use Intype.

Definitely can be provided as resource in the documentation, but if we
bundle it, we need to realize that file association is not going to
work in corporate environments without the admin rights.
