I'm pretty sure Visual C++ and Borland's C++Builder will do a lot of what I'm 
suggesting.  I believe some of the features I'm suggesting actually 
originated in the C++ IDE environments.  Gosling & Co. saw it was a good 
thing, so they designed the Java language to make it easy.

Thanks. That's good information to know.  The other part of what I was talking 
about is to then get a listing of header files available, and perhaps even 
add the ability to view them(read-only?).  It would be nice to be able to get 
code completion for the #include entries.  Also nice would be the ability to 
add the contents of the headers that are visible in the current scope.

I believe this is possible.  It would used the same mechanism the compiler 
uses to determine what declarations are in scope.  It may even be possible to 
get gcc to help out in the process.
