Could you describe what you think is wrong with the emacs environment ?

As far as I can see they are either already in emacs or could be implemented
there without too much work. If you want some inspiration see integrated 
emacs based development environments for some other languages, like the 
Franz Lisp emacs interface or the GNU Ada Emacs mode or the JDE Java 
environment.

They are all nicely integrated with cross reference tools, provide easy 
access to interpreters, integration with debuggers and all kinds of other
things.
