I agree, I think a handful of know interfaces are essential to get an 
efficient IDE. If we don't know the components which implements such 
interfaces we don't need special interfaces at all, or? Nevertheless the 
components can be exchanged and many components don't know others at the 
moment. The grepview doesn't know the projectview for instance.
