Commercial Mac IDE

Hi,

My point was that it may be worth considering the options first.
Having done some work on an IDE framework before, I know there are a
lot of tricky details. So riding on the Eclipse wave would cut a lot
of corners.

If the project is seen as a "learn by doing" thing, then the above
doesn't apply. But for a commercial project, time to market is very
important. There are a lot of commercial Eclipse-based environments,
so it's possible to build upon erlide with extra plugins (comercially
licensed).

And of course, I wouldn't mind if this would help along Erlide too :-)

regards,
Vlad
