Most non-IDE users still use GUI designers and other tools (and many
standalone programmer's editors had code completion long before Eclipse
existed).  I've had no problem using unintegraded gui designers to
build large GUIs.  I fail to see how bundling it in a package with my
editor and debugger would make it more productive.
