OK, thanks, I didn't know that. It wasn't a rhetorical
question, although I thought Eclipse was an IDE for Java
and nothing more.

Well, if it wasn't, that would be *really* bad! As for
me, I don't like Java at all but if I ever had to do it
I would use Emacs, because I always use Emacs so I can't
dispense with everything I configured/added (and
programmed into my muscle memory), besides I don't think
I could make Eclipse look a way that would make it
possible for me to use. So, in my case, any highly
Java-specialized features of Eclipse would amount to
nothing anyway. (But that's me.)

Me too ;)
