Syntax highlighting and auto complete. Add to that the same for javascript, html
and other useful tools, and in the past you did not need to 'leave' Eclipse to
handle the entire development process. Git and hg are messing things up at the

and SVN ;) My projects are all based on bitweaver which provides all of the core
functionality so I've not needed anything else yet.
