[wingide-users] Editor optimization patch

There's a new patch that optimizes some aspects of the editor in
Wing IDE 2.0.2 so that typing is faster.  It is patch #3 from
this page:


The patch reduces the number of times the IDE reanalyses indent
style while editing files.  It was doing it far more than needed
and the analysis is fairly costly in larger files.

This patch also fixes failure to recognize mixed tab+space indent
style in all non-Python files, something that could lead to
confused auto-indentation.

To install the patch, unpack it into your Wing IDE installation.  
If using WinZip, be sure to leave the "Use Folder Names" option
checked. On OS X, you need to unpack into Contents/MacOSX inside
the Wing IDE.app folder (the thing that the finder shows as the
double-clickable executable).  You know you've done it right if 
Wing shows patch 03 in its About box after it is restarted.
