    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.

Could you tell me more about CEDET?

      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.

What language is CEDET written in?  What is its license?  How would we
make Emacs talk with it?

This could be a big step forward IF there is no horrible snag.
