Hmm, yes, it was probably not clear from my summary: Anjuta is really
the most natural choice. The question could be: is it ready to go in for
2.22 or should we wait a bit more?

We do want the stand-alone apps for the old coders like us, don't we? I
don't think it's only a few coders here and there...
(there's integration with glade3 and devhelp in anjuta)

Again, the summary was probably a bit misleading. There's also the fact
that we don't know if it's good from a usability point of view (which is
a hard question for an IDE, I guess). Basically, is it just ready?
That's why we'd like to know what people using it think about it.

(it would have been great to know the fact that it's hard to translate
earlier -- note that there's a GHOP task to help fix this, though)
