Isn't debugging, refactoring and code reading (finding references,
going to definition, etc etc -- noone reads code like a book, right?)
many times faster in Java or C# IDEs ? AFAIK Vala could be integrated
into IDEs (Eclipse, Monodevelop, Valide) in a similar way as Java or
C# and provide many benefits that most of the developers use for many
years already..
