Well, you certainly have more control, but I don't think I'd want to 
write a macro that extracted code chunks into methods with 
automagically-correct parameter signatures, return types, etc. or 
pulling methods up or down, changing method signatures and propagating 
it through my code, etc.

Having context-sensitive code completion/auto-complete is nice too, 
especially for verbose languages like Java etc.
