Open Source the IDE

Developer Tools

 The IDE as is stands is pretty sweet but wouldn't it be awesomesauce to have richer code completion (in Visualforce for example), quick fixes for errors (ala the Java perspective), a better debugger, a rocking schema explorer and more class/trigger templates?

I know you chaps are a touch busy rocking our world with some other cool features so why not open up the source code for the plugin? Help us help you. You could reject anything that you don't dig, or isn't sufficiently good and at very least you'll get cool ideas and wicked improvements. So what do you say Salesforce?
