As far as HORM is concerned none of the current Front Ends will support it because its so new. I know that in my front end I'm supporting it and I think SForioto is designing a front end that will support it I'm probably not going to release my front end simply because I wont be able to provide support for the front end itself.
EDIT: this is an update, I think that RoadRunner supports HORM now. YAY!
