i still downloading Eclipse in order to try your plugin. You've asked
about features we want to see in the IDE. Here's my own list, more or
less in priorities order:

- background compilation with errors highlighting
- integration with WinHugs
- syntax highlighting, including highlighting of bracket's pair
- ability to "fall in" definition of identifier under cursor,
including multi-level ability to return back (with support for base
libraries, libraries i installed and current project)
- fast access to help about identifier
- auto-deriving of type signatures for global identifiers (adding
signatures, that compiler will infer, to the source file)
- automatic management of import lists
- one-key inclusion/exclusion of items in module export list
- project management based on Cabal file
- auto-indenting with user-tuned style

Are you use GHC library? In the paper
"Visual Haskell: A full-featured Haskell development environment"
Simon Marlow described how this library can be used to enhance Haskell
support in IDE
