The main problem with Eclipse is the Java dependency and the huge
memory requirements which otherwise seems good.  I do not feel Eclipse
will run comfortably in a 128MB (or even 256MB) RAM.

We have three choices

1. Use Anjuta2 with plugins (or write them)
2. Implement an IDE from scratch (well, can't we rapidly develop with _python_?)
3. Use Eclipse
