One difference between an IDE and Emacs is that IDEs often show
various bits of information about the current project in little
windows around the suorce code.  With ECB, Emacs can do the same

ECB is très cool.

Note that ECB works with CEDET which provides parsing of source
code.  This is a framework that has lots of potential for vastly
improving Emacs' support for different programming languages.  What
we can see in ECB is merely the tip of the iceberg.  I think that
including CEDET in Emacs would enable various other packages to take
advantage of it.  For example, font-lock could be improved by better
parsing, as could syntactic indentation.  CEDET already provides
syntax-driven completion: if x is a struct, then completing after
"x." completes the members of that struct.

CEDET is très cool.
