The standard IDE is still Emacs. We're working on erlide, but there's
still a lot to do. The debugger is the next big feature that we are
targeting, but I can't give a time estimate now.

I'm not sure what you mean. One doesn't *have* to import any module,
just use Module:Function(). The only thing importing does is let you
write less text (i.e. just Function()), at the price of having to
worry about function name clashes.
