Super SpeedScript?

I have an Atari computer, and I would like to know if "Atari XL/XE Super Editor" from the June 1987 issue of COMPUTE! can be modified to work with SpeedScript.

"Super Editor" is a handy editing utility for any program that uses the E: screen editing device. This includes BASIC and certain other programs. SpeedScript does not use the E: device—it has its own routines for handling keyboard entry and text displays. This allows SpeedScript to quickly handle word wrap, cursor movement, and scrolling. It also makes SpeedScript incompatible with any programs that depend on the E: device. So there is no way to make Super Editor compatible with SpeedScript.
