Eclipse has a nice graphical editor framework plugin, GEF, that could be
used for something like that. Once the Erlide environment is in place, I was

simpler, like the application monitor).
Regarding storing parse trees in the CVS, I think the disadvantage is just
as big as the problem it solves: you won't be able to easily compare/merge
different versions, unless using a special tool that will transform to text
