Actually, as much as it shames me to admit it, there is one feature in the VC6
M$ bloat thing IDE I really want to see on a Unix platform, and that's the
incredibly powerful way it can back reference callers, classes etc. Perhaps it's
me, but I just can't get ctags etc to work the same way, and my LISP is too weak
to make emacs do it.

I'm going to build eclipse later today and have a look at it by the way, if it's
exciting I'll post on this thread about it. I hope so, then the last developer
we have who is tied to VC can finally move to a real dev environment.
