Eclipse Monkey

Ward and Bjorn have put out an interesting plugin for Eclipse called Eclipse Monkey. I bugged Ward after he joined Eclipse to please do something about the dearth of scriptability in Eclipse. This seems like the start of something interesting, but at the moment feels a bit too much like a toy.

It doesn't help that I have almost no experience in writing Eclipse UI plugins. Even the stuff the Find_System_Prints.em is doing is a bit over my head; in terms of what the 'doms' are doing, anyway.

And it seems to die pretty quickly in 3.2M5. Which is where I'm doing most of my work. Die as in the Monkey menu 'goes away'.
