It's indeed a shame that no one of you young programmers who need this
``modern IDE'' stuff steps forward to add such features to Emacs.
Don't just rely on us old farts!

Every useful feature in Emacs (and elsewhere in Free Software) started
as a programmer's itch.  There's nothing particularly hard about
adding this, much of the infrastructure is already there.  All you
need is a little time and some will power.
