Actually, eclipse is an exceptionally juicy integration target. A lot of 
tomorrow's workflow will possibly happen  in eclipse, and complete 
interactive python integration has tremendous potential. IPython could 
even become the de facto standard CLI for the eclipse platform, provided 
that a reasonably good way to access Java objects is available (JPype?) 
for creating wrappers to ease the common tasks...
