I think the point is that "IDE" is hard to define.  As I noted in my
previous message, you're going to have a hard time naming an IDE feature
that Emacs doesn't have.  (It has an integrated source-code debugger, for
instance.)  It just doesn't put them together and present them in the way
that most IDEs on, say, Windows would.
