Also, not everyone is using Eclipse. There's NetBeans, IntelliJ and
JDeveloper too, for example. One good thing about Ivy is that it's not
IDE-bound. At our company, anyone can use their favorite IDE on the
same shared project with no problems. I'd rather have the development
effort concentrate on Ivy itself than on a plugin for a particular IDE.

Just my two cents,
