I thought so, even though I didn't do much research on this front.
the link, I'll check it out.
Eclipse is one step ahead on this already. FYI
Having IDE users as a post-thought never works - either one tool is thought with both kind

wrapping console calls with some UI doesn't work because you need to make the tool
work in a familiar way for the group you target.
