Yes the current source editor is a pure hack, and it needs to be  
replaced with something more robust.  The plans are based off of EMF  
models and we need a source editor that is live (not just showing the  
serialized version of the model) but always in sync.  I think this  
can be done by somehow by extending eclipse's structured source  
editor to provide a EMF to XML adapter.

Yes, if the console allows the uid/pw to be passed in directly in the  
url, then yes certainly.
