'but Saros does not sound anywhere like one' -- are you referring to the 
Saros you gave the link to? This is *not* the Saros referred to in the FAQ.

The Saros you are looking for is available for browsing/download from 
ECLiPSe's Sourceforge CVS:

This provide the same set of development tools as TkECLiPSe/TkTools 
(they use the same code on the ECLiPSe side), along with EclipseIDE's 
editor, although I think the editor is quite basic, i.e. little if any 
ECLiPSe specific features are supported.

However, Saros is not being developed at the moment, as the original 
developer is no longer working on it (or ECLiPSe), and neither Joachim 
or I are really in a position to develop it. We are looking for a 
developer/maintainer for Saros:

I am not sure I understand. Are you relying on the IDE's editor to do 
all the lay out/formatting of your code? While an IDE's editor can help, 
you should be able to do some formatting yourself in any text editor. 
The ECLiPSe manual (and any Prolog text book) has suggestions on how 
Prolog program should be formatted.

As also mentioned in the FAQ, ECLiPSe support is provided for several 
editors. The support for emacs is the most extensive, and probably 
provide many of the features you expect from an IDE, such as auto 
indentation and line break for formatting support. You can even run 
ECLiPLSe from inside emacs, and attach TkTools to the ECLiPSe process, 
so supporting even more IDE-lke functionality.

Many text editors without ECLiPSe (or Prolog) support can still provide 
useful help, e.g. open-close brackets matching. I think you work on 
Windows, and NotePad++ looks to be a good editor to use. It looks like 
there is even support for Prolog (syntax highlighting etc.), although I 
have not tried them.
