Also, with MacOSX coming, with its FreeBSD/Mach core, getting a fully
up-to-date emacs running should be trivial. 
http://www.porkrind.org/emacs/ talks about one effort in that
direction.  So, if you're looking forward to OSX and would like to run
IDLWAVE to its full potential (or are just tired of the IDLDE), you
might want to start lobbying RSI now to be sure and include a MacOSX
terminal version of IDL, in addition to the DE.  It should be pretty
trivial to perform that port.
