Ah, that depends on your definition of "complete" :)

To have a "working" language addin you just need the language binding,
to enable projects and compilation. After that you can add other
features (such as parsing, code completion, refactoring) one by one -
I roughly listed the extension points and the order in which they
should be implemented a couple of emails back in this discussion, but
I can't remember the exact names of the points offhand. You should be
able to find them in existing addins quite easily.

I suggest you take this step by step and ask specific questions that
come up as you progress - I can answer questions about how to do
specific things much more easily than general questions.
