thanks for your mail and sorry for the long delay in answering :-( I was on
a business trip the last four days and could not answer all my mail. Sadly,
this will be the same in the week from June 14th, so sorry in advance if
I'll be (almost) unreachable in that time again. (But it''s related to
Eclipse, so it is at least for a god purpose :-)

That would be great. As I said, for me is this at the B-priority level for
the moment, but for a start we could proceed as follows:
I have (already in 0.2) started to create some of the core functionalities
that notify the language model. (You find language-model related stuff in
the haskell.core plugin in the 'halamo'-packages.) I will put an extension
point for a Haskell parser in the haskell.core plugin, which can be then
extended from a new plugin (haskell.core.parser). That new plugin can then
contain the parser (native), bridge, and implementation for the extension.
I think we should put this in a separate plugin primarily because we will
have to divide it up into at least two (win32, linux) fragments with the
respective native code in them (that is the usual way the Eclipse project
handles platform dependent components). With an extension point, we can
later easily add Haskell -> Java bytecode compiled parsers (or possibly an
ANTLR-generated parser). It has the additional advantage that we can leave
it out of the stable builds if it makes problems (native code - it's bound
to do that ;-)
Once the extension-point is in place, we should start trying to set up a
Hope that makes sense,
