Although developing an IDE/plugin at the same time could be ideal, it's not practical at the moment. A good plugin would take even more work than the compiler itself so with only 2 working on the compiler regularly it's not an option. The difficult choice between the IDEs and the limited experience of us with advanced IDEs are ohter reasons not to develop it at the same time.

How do you think that the language could be influced by a plugin?

Nice makes much more programming styles possible than Java so that we don't know anything yet about good refactorings and pratical idioms. I think we need to know more about the usage of Nice before a plugin can be useful.
