Thanks!  What about syntax highlighting and Ruby indentation?  (And
rhtml support would be nice)

Also, does emacs support stuff like this properly?

some_function argument_1, 
              argument_2,
              argument_3
              #cursor should not be here!
#cursor should be here!

That's one of the things that bugged me with vim.
