In opposition, I think that this kind of feature should indeed happen 
automatically, otherwise you're quicker doing it by hand.

It would be perfectly ok to only have it applied after a short time of no 
keyboard input (say, 1 second or 2), then it doesn't distract typing.
Also, Katepart should really be fast enough to handle this simultaneously.
(It doesn't even have to be saved, that normally happens on build when you 
need it, so no slowdown by slow hard disks.)
