Editing -- *probably* not. Using -- yes. When using Eclipse, I have tens
of open files -- say I'm editing 10, and actively using 30 to understand the
logic I'm plugging in. The problem with Eclipse UI, is that it has line 6 files
that fit in tabs, and the button that shows all open files -- sorted alphabetically.
So, in the case when I actually care about 20 files, and have 100 opened, this
UI does not work all that great -- some sorting of files by number of times it
was looked at would be good.
