It is only inconsistent to the extent that it is inconsistent for WRI 
to develop a package format for Mathematica and provide no tools for 
editing or handling of packages (besides a basic template). The 
FrontEnd has tools only for manipulating notebooks and the concept of 
"line" is not appropriate in a Mathematica notebook.
On the other this is an opportunity for someone else to develop such 
tools. For example, on the Mac someone familiar with Tcl could develop 
a Mathematica package mode for the AlphaX editor (or using Tk instead 
of TCl one could do this for AlphaTk which also runs on Windows).
