Thanks a lot for your work!

Having a look at Distel/Wrangler and other IDE-based-on-Emacs
solutions, I have a thought that it is better to have an IDE split
into multiple small modules, which have a as small dependency graph as
possible. With new packaging mechanisms in Emacs 24 it is definitely
possible to make it easy for users to track dependencies. With
features separated into small packages it would be easier for uses to
integrate features of EDTS into their setup. IMVHO :)
