It's high up on our priority list, and we've discussed it extensively 
within the team (we even have an extremely incomplete proof of concept). 
  We'd really like to have it for internal use, and we know that it'll be 
a big, big usability improvement for the IDE.  On the other hand, our 
priority list is very long, and there's still a lot of things above it.

My *guess* is that we'll have something basic out by the end of the year 
(please don't bring pitchforks and torches if I'm wrong).
