I admit that it is not really obvious concept, but after 2weeks of usage (I'm
an eclipse newbie), I would say that there is good potential. I assume that
3.0 will be a real nice product. BTW most of the software dev working in
*Dilbert* corp are now using eclipse (12Millons download ;)), so maybe we
should stay democratic.

One nice feature would be avalon-meta support (especially in refactor stage,
when renaming a class), and block.xml synchronization. I dont have exact
idea, but I think this would reduce some common error.
