Not on Eiffel, but I'm working on Sather (which started life as a simple  
Eiffel clone, but has changed considerably since).

Just thought this was a good opportunity to say it - it's been in Sven's  
list for a long time :-)

And WRT the misplaced /opt discussion on -private, Sather is one of those  
packages that think everything should be below one directory. I've got  
most important parts out, though; I mostly need to handle the elisp files,  
which is sort of tricky because I have no emacs installed (and don't want  
any, and don't have the space for one until I get this new 3G disk  
attached and some partitions swapped around - btw, 3G disks currently seem  
to cost about half of 4G disks, at least around here!).
