Well, I haven't tried gIDE yet so we're on equal footing :).  I will take a
look at it perhaps this weekend to see how pong could "plug in".

I suppose all that gIDE needs to do to support .pong is to:

Add .pong file to the makefile magic, do the gettext dance for it, link with
the pong library, and be able to launch pong-edit.  I guess this should all
be done in concert with gconf support, as pong-edit also allows you to
generate .schema files for gconf.  However it doesn't allow you to read it
schema files, just generate them from a .pong file

Quite apparently :)
