My main beef, if you will, is the large size of Eclipse and  
associated baggage. I tried using it for Java development before and  
found it slow and bloated. Plus, I don't want to code in Java to  
extend my Erlang environment.

I would also like to take advantage of all the APIs that Apple and  
Cocoa have to offer, including the ones coming out in Leopard.  
Ultimately, I'm planning to offer a trading systems development  
platform and it would need a coding environment. I might as well  
build the environment first and then extend it further.

	Thanks, Joel
