Not really.
If you can't interact with the other programming tool from Emacs, because of
a closed non-text data representation,
or a format which is not manipulated well by a text editor (icons, bitmaps
etc.), or simply a certain development tool feature which is reachable only
through a GUI menu, switching back and forth to Emacs or trying to firgure
out how not to drop Emacs from the development cycle _is_ the barrier to
enhanced productivity.
I don't think that this is seeing things from the wrong angle, when merely
keeping up with changing standards and interfaces of default common tools
demands continuous and active effort from an Emacs user .
