Hello  Jonathan,

I like the idea having the verilog-mode loaded by priority :
-1)  emacs-verilog-mode
-2) if emacs-verilog-mode is not present then load verilog-mode coming
with emacs-el

Could you review the emacs-verilog-mode package ?

The latest verilog-mode comes with system-verilog support and I'm
trying to get as much system-verilog support for FEL in order to
introduce OVM and VMM on fedora.


PS :We should not forget that verilog-mode and dinotrace have the same upstream.
