Is it possible to create your own editor type with python? I know that I can edit the sources of existing ones like the INFO header. But I want to create a complete new one where I can place my operators.

I mean the windows like 3D view or graph editor. Maybe its also called area.type –  Miguellissimo Feb 15 at 14:08
    
It is refered to as Editor as well as Space type. I wouldn't call it Area type, 'cause an area is a generic type and does not store any Editor/Space related data (other than the type and references to the regions and spaces). An area.type is set to use a certain Editor or Space type for that area in Python. –  CoDEmanX Feb 15 at 22:54
