If Eclipse really is the answer I'll have to learn more about it, but 
from the little I know so far it seems like a very heavyweight solution. 
Not that Visual Studio is becomingly trim, of course - it's a fine 
example of bloatware, but it does do a useful job as a GUI builder. 
Perhaps there's a lesson somewhere in there ...
