I remember being around when people were first bouncing around the idea
of a developer's suite and I'd love to see it a reality, but you're
bringing up an interesting point.

If we did it now, we'll probably have Devhelp and Glade-3. For G20 we
might add Nerimeriver (how do you spell it?) and maybe Anjuta. I'm not
sure on what the timeline for GtkBuilder is, but an interface editor at
that point would certainly be a wonderful complement. That said, there
are still people who have never heard of Devhelp, if we had an official
developer set, maybe it would get more press and as soon as possible.

So, I would be tempted to add it now, and add the debugger/IDE next
time, but there is certainly a case to go for the suite-grande next time


PS. I have been drinking, if this doesn't make sense, that is why.
