[Ken Seehof, pitches an IDE SIG]

Note that this is essentially an attempt to resurrect the Progenv-SIG under
a new name.  The latter was killed off in January of '98 after inspiring a
grand total of about 40 msgs (including spam <wink>) over its entire life.

There are many more IDE-type projects in existence today than then, but the
Big Unknown is whether IDE developers will actually participate.

Neither objection would apply to, e.g., an egroups list.  A full-blown SIG
likely requires a couple hundred members to justify the hassle on CNRI's

PS:  I'd certainly sign up for the IDE SIG if it's created.
