I would like to see that, particularly if it was presented in
stages.  Like, I want to build a "hello world" .deb and what is
involved?  What happens when I decide to use ncurses to print my
message?  What happens if I want to package someone elses program that has
lots of #define configuration macros?  What happens when the version of
ncurses increments?  What happens when my own program version increments?

I have used several Windows IDEs, but when I last investigated them on
Linux a couple of years ago, I decided they weren't up to par.  Kylix
looked nice, but I have absolutely no interest in using Delphi.

I have been using Emacs (at a fairly crude level because I don't have 
the hang of Lisp) and ddd this year.  I miss context-sensitive
name-completion, but ddd is quite impressive.
