Or maybe it is just too hard to get involved with editor development in Eclipse for a lot of people. Don't confuse inactivity for lack in demand. OSS developers are rarely representative of the set of user their products are used by.

There is more than 110 votes, so statistically there should be at least one guru, who *started* working on the issue.
