libraries that do all the magic, and I am as of yet entirely unfamilar.
ANd once again, I need Javascript. Though I'm aware Eclipse can run in
~Home, I don't like the mess that and other such things make. I prefer
the clean organization and integration that a proper .rpm install does.
Plus, Eclipse packages are available for everything BUT 12.1. Also heard
about Aptana, which looks pretty damn sharp. I'd happily do it myself if
I could figure out OBS or .rpm spec files. I thought Monodevelop had
Javascript support, but it coughs up so many errors I'm afraid to use
it.

why is installing in ~/ messier than putting the app. into different places under /usr/lib or wherever? it's much easier to nuke your ~/eclipse than getting rid of everything eclipse may have installed into various locations, if you should choose to update the packages not from .rpm, but from the eclipse interface itself.

personally i prefer kdevelop for things that can't easily be accomodated in kate. this also gives you browsing capability for classes & functions, etc., apart from syntax highlighting and auto-completion, which is available in kate already.

what i've seen in forums & mailing lists, most serious users of eclipse have always prefered a separate installation, not the .rpm version.
