An IDE isn't worth much in many use cases. I see the reason in it when 
developing gui apps. But for my work I honestly don't see any use for it.

Basically a good tabbed editor suits my needs.

The only two things I really miss is:

1) A good refactoring tool. Search and replace can be a bit hit'n miss 
sometime.

2) A context aware class browser, that would show the classes with the 
methods & defined attributes they have in the current context. So that I 
could do a little less grep'ing and manual backtracking of ancestor objects.

So maybe I *do* ned a good IDE anyway :-)
