Just a quick heads up on the ECB issue.

I am using Emacs 23 from CVS and had to update ECB and the associated packages to use this version of Emacs. I have emacs 23 installed and run from a separate download folder, so that I do not overwrite the installed stable version.

I use the CEDET cedet-1.0pre3.tar.gz aggregate package from as well as the ECB cvs snap shot package ecb.tar.gz from

The CEDET package includes cogre, ede, eieio, semantic and speedbar.

Extract these two files and then modify ~/.emacs with the following:

;; Load ECB
(setq semantic-load-turn-everything-on t) (load-file "/PATH/TO/CEDET/cedet-1.0pre3/common/cedet.el")

(add-to-list 'load-path "/PATH/TO/ECB/ecb-snap") (require 'ecb)

And all seems well.
