Way to go!

Please submit any changes you feel are necessary to, or, better yet, file a bug with the patches using
"M-x report-emacs-bug RET".

People who want to improve Emacs support for IDE-like development
environment with modern features are encouraged to make improvements
and submit them, and generally work on improving them, rather than
whine about Emacs being "slightly better than Notepad".  That kind of
attitude will never get you any closer to your goal.

You can sit on the fence laughing at Emacs and waiting for others to
do the job, or you can jump in, bite the bullet, and do something to
advance Emacs into the future.  Your call.
