Absolutely agree. I would also recommend distel. It was written by  
one of the main hackers of the SLIME mode for lisp - widely regarded  
as the best emacs language mode.

One very neat trick is to hot load your newly compiled module into  
the target test system with a quick Emacs keystroke.

It also supports interactive debugging in the target system, code  
completion etc etc.

Almost worth learning how to use Emacs for :-)
