We are not discussing here what tool is the best and try to mandate
everyone to use it. We are discussing how to efficiently use the scarce
development resources (time, money) for the benefit of haskell community.
It does not matter if the specific tool will succeed in adoption or not.
Trying to create one is still the best course of action.
>Build a consensus *first*
The consensus is already there. It is obvious the demand for such tool is
high, hence many (failed) attempts. Failed because of the lack of resources
>As far as I can see, it is based on wishful thinking alone.
I already pointed at existing successful implementations (clojure's nrepl
and lisps slime-swank). If they can do it, so can we.
