I clearly recommend Emacs with haskell-mode, but I agree that the
indentation is problematic.  Note that the code in the CVS repository
comes with a completely new indentation algorithm courtesy of Kristof
Bastiaensen <kristof.bastiaensen at vleeuwen.org> (so you can now choose
between haskell-simple-indent, haskell-indent, and the new
haskell-indentation).  I haven't tried this new algorithm much, but
people who dislike haskell-indent might want to give it a try.
