Oliver, Anirudh,

I'd also offer my help in this, as this is something I really miss so far. 
I, too, can only work in the evenings but I should be able to put on hour 
or another in.

>  1. Basic refactoring support like:

> more robust than find and replace), with previews and diffs like it's 
> done in eclipse
>    (b) Extract codeblock into method, extract constants from strings, 
> etc.
>    (c) Anything else you can suggest
>  2. Preliminary warnings while the code is being written, possible type 
> mismatches, symbols out of scope, symbols not found, etc.
>  3. Basic interface for viewing and possibly commenting on bugzilla and 
> trac bug tracking systems using xml-rpc.
>  4. Marking warnings, errors as little marks next to the scroll bars, 
> based on their relative position in the document.
>  5. Anything else you suggest
