I think there are quite a few of us who are excited about this project 
and would like to see this happen.  Unfortunately not all of us have the 
time (or perhaps the skills) to contribute.  If my schedule opens up I 
am definitely up for helping out.  My end goal - like yours - is to 
write Eclipse plug-ins, with the ultimate achievement of a Python IDE in 
Eclipse.  pyDev is about as close as we have come - but I think it has 
reached a 'plateau'.
