Eclipse + Google SOC

I want to commend the Eclipse community for getting involved with Google’s Summer of Code. There are a couple of interesting projects listed:
* Cross platform Eclipse SWT embedded Firefox browser widget
* Mylar and ECF integration, enabling task contexts to be shared synchronously between developers

Now that I’m a student, maybe I can swing towards one of these projects ;p

On a side note, I was reading an interesting tutorial regarding creating games in Eclipse. I believe Doug Schaefer mentioned the notion of Eclipse + Gaming before. I believe there’s a lot of unexplored territory in this field and I’d be curious to hear what people think about it (personally, I just want to have an Eclipse keybinding that brings up invaders or that crazy BASIC game with the gorillas)
