new eclipse-php project has debugging..not sure what its status is though.

are you talking the subclipse (svn plugin)? i have not had any issues

yeah the highlighting needs a little work on this front?

i know with eclipse you can speed this up with some commandline options.
though for the average user, they would not know this.

I think this really depends.
