i answer in cafe so that Thiago can see you preferences :)

for me, compilation & errors navigation, syntax highlighting and code
navigation is minimal required features set. help is actually replaced
by code navigation - function's definition in Haskell typically
contains appropriate help text (which is eventually extracted by
Haddock and placed into html file). The only advantage of using pure
html help is to omit all the unneeded information (implementation
details and so on) and see beautiful formatted text with hyperlinks

smart indentation is not easy for Haskell, i think. I don't even sure
that myself has some strict indenting rules. moreover, with many edits
of source files this again loses it's meaning

i'm also curious about code completion - never worked with good one
(after the MultiEdit's support for C language constructs :) )

Best regards,
