with emacs/vim you will get compilation and error positioning, code
templates, names completion, navigation. refactoring area isn't really
developed in Haskell land, although Pragmatica has such tools

there is less need in debugging. also, Haskell uses very small amount
of syntax sugar. don't know how documenting works in today IDEs, i
just add "-- |..." before every function :)

try to use WinHugs together with editor, it's very friendly
environment. this summer successor of WinHugs with GHC support will be
developed: http://neilmitchell.blogspot.com/2007/04/soc-guihaskell.html .

as one already said, GHC HEAD now includes imperative debugger

so, there is no "one size fits all", but everyone compose his own IDE
from tools one need :)  in 90's i've seen packages that installed
bunch of software required to live in FIDO. may be, it's a time to
develop Haskell "IDE" installer?
