I still have one (quite general) question:
When eclipse 'does' pydev, is it mostly in java or in python?

Using python's native parser etc makes the analysis more reliable at
the cost of more fragile, non-portable(?) etc plumbing between java
and python.

Whereas rewriting python's parsing etc in java, makes the basic
architecture easier but will always keep you behind target when say
python changes/adds to its syntax/feature set etc.

Which do you choose? And are the new facilities in Juno easier for
cross-language feature-sets?
