I'm not an Eclipse user, but the key question is: is there a shell
command you can enter that will open a given filename in
Eclipse/Pydev? Bonus points if it allows specifying a line number.

Note that %edit also behaves a bit differently in the terminal to the
Qt console: terminal IPython expects %edit to block until the user
closes the file in the editor.
