OM IDE (was: Re: Common Lisp for OM (Was: Programming OM))

Nah, I'd been planning on getting haskell up for OM.  They already
have a basic ARM target for ghc, and there's already a haskell->GTK

But, now that we're talking about development environments,  who'd be
interested in using an IDE for developing OM?

I was thinking about putting together a Netbeans plugin to dev for it.
 I'm wondering:
1. anyone want to use such a thing?
2. anyone wanna help?

I'll be using Mac OS X & solaris personally (probably more of the
latter), but if someone'd be up for testing it on Linux, I'd be happy
to support that too.  A nice little basis to create wizards for all
kinds of OM applications, plugins, etc. sounds like good community
open-source fun.

I'd consider this my first big contribution to OM, so I'm happy to do it.

Please, no religious wars on Java/NetBeans, etc.  Feel free to use the
work for your own desires after, but I've been through enough dev
cycles on other platforms that I'm feeling pretty firm on this.

If you say 'Eclipse', I'm going to traceroute you from a cell modem in
my car, and bring a baseball bat with me.
