I've had the Erlang sources for years.
It's very rare for me to look at the C sources at all,
so I really don't see the inconvenience.

Someone developing a NIF would have a different experience,
but that's something that should be done with extreme
vigilant trepidation (thanks for the phrase, Rex Stout)
after a long experience of doing things purely in Erlang.

You do realise that in any sufficiently dynamic language,
it may be impossible to do this correctly?

You did do a web search for "Erlang IDE"?
You would find http://www.erlang.org/faq/tools.html
and of course erlide.
