I understand we need a IDE build on top of gtk, and I also want to see
that personally.

However building a usable IDE is very hard and complex: live parsing
and indexing accurately takes significant amount of effort.Especially
indexing and parsing complex language like C++ (which I believe a lot
of developers would want this IDE to support) . Also, core features
such as code completion will be even hard for language like Python. I
guess that's why there are users perfer to use "ugly" IDE like
netbeans rather than a good looking Anjuta.

Wouldn't libclang solve the 'hard' parts you mentioned for C++? I
believe there was a GUADEC talk[1] and there seems to be at least some
work for gedit already[2].

(That does not solve the problem for Python, JavaScript etc. of course)
