This has been discussed recently.
But you are right. I'm no longer able to find the page giving a
comprehensive list of editor support on haskell.org. Either it's to late
or it is gone.

Many editors do support this. (JEdit, vim, emacs, kedit,..)

using tags I know that jEdit, vim and emacs do support this. I'm sure
many others do as well

Search haskell.org for refactoring. There are some applications. 
But I can't tell you how well they are integrated within editors.

For visual studio there exists a pretty complete ide.
there is eclipsefp for haskell and OCaml.

I've written some kind of function and module completion for vim.
When importing many files it gets too slow.
There doe exist two different approaches (search for them in the
mailinglist archive.. ) eg http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&rls=en&q=haskell-cafe+ide&sourceid=opera&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8

You are invited to write one ;)

I'm sure that you'll get a lot of additional replies pointing you to
more information
