In addition to those, editors written specifically for editing
ECMAScript 4 will also be able supply an easy method on inserting it
via either text replacement (insert \( and it magics that into λ) or
via some keypress combination.

One problem here is that text documents default to non-unicode code
pages on Windows (no idea about other OSes), and servers don't usually
serve javascript as utf-8 or utf-16.
