I'm leaving for the holidays in 5 minutes, I'll post my configs when I
return (Monday-ish).  Feel free to email me a reminder on Monday...

The basic concept should work fine in emacs, but the glue would need

the NetBeans integration interface so that vim/xemacs/whatever would
pick it up okay, but I'm not sure if that API is featureful enough).
