The Eclipse Tipping Point?

Apparently everybody but me had seen the discussion on GCJ, Native Java Compilation and Eclipse by David Orme. It is an interesting read. And it is good to see others are also dreaming of the same kind of future we are working on. The only piece missing in this story seems to be java-gnome which I think is the real “lynchpin” to be honest. Using Eclipse as IDE to create new free software with gcj build around native java-gnome applications (with glade for example) seems like a winner to me.
