 The problem is necessarily dynamic vs static, but rather a language
 with a BNF compared to a language without.  By BNF I actually mean a
 set of rules by which to parse (BNF actually being the rules in a
 particular format).  Much of most modern IDE capabilities are hindered
 by not being able to parse the code.

 Emacs has worked pretty well for me so far.  I tried other IDEs, and I
 found most of the to be clunky and too window based.  I find I'm most
 productive when I use Emacs.
