Well, in the end the proposals will be voted over. Less general
proposals are likely to get fewer votes.

Say what? I'm not familiar with the others, but Emacs and haskell-mode
and ghc-mode and darcsum works pretty well for me - I'd certainly not
call them failures.
(Of course, I would rather see somebody spending GSoC working on them,
but I accept that other people prefer other systems. But while I'm at
it, some things I might like to see would be:
- quickcheck/flymake support, so that funcitons with failing unit
tests are highlighted automatically
- code coverage highlighting in buffer
- org-mode-like folding and refiling
- automatic import/export list management
- perhaps easy navigation between source and core?
If I haven't seen further, it is by standing in the footprints of giants
