Erlang IDE (was Re: Eclipse plugin advances)

It is worth adding that the effort being put into developing a good 
Erlang IDE will pay off with a much much wider user base, so I hope 
Eric, Marc and Vlad will keep up the good work.

Emacs is great, but not suited for everyone... Especially when they are 
busy learning a new language, the last thing they want to do is to learn 
a new editor. A straight forward IDE, lots of clicking and easily 
accessible documentation would certainly facitate the task of getting 
people to play around with Erlang much more than they are today. 
(Certainly a different group of people). Only when they are hooked on 
Erlang we can migrate them and get them hooked to Emacs.  :-)

Cheers,
Francesco
