I very much like the idea of Sprog, but I'd prefer to
see it as an Eclipse plugin rather than a separate
application.

This would have the benefit of
1) being cross platform
2) offering an excellent, (almost) full-featured editor
for "free"
3) add project management & version control for "free"

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-

    Interesting ideas Geert and if you wanted to pursue building
    something like that then I would encourage you to do so.

    Addressing each of your listed benefits:

    1) Sprog already is cross platform.
    2) Sprog would not really benefit from an editor - the
    components are configured via dialog boxes.
    3) I'm not sure that project management and version control
    will be high on the list of user requirements. Many of the
    machines built with Sprog will be used once and thrown away.

    People developing gears would potentially benefit from using
    an IDE and definitely would want to use version control but
    I'm not sure that they'd benefit from having Sprog 'in' the IDE.
