* Eclipse Monkey runs today against the workspace state
+
* Scala is already a first class citizen in the JVM runtime. We should exploit that.
+
* We also shouldn't let this capability make it impossible to use Rhino, etc...
+
* Is scripting the way we call across language boundaries where the language isn't a native JVM lanaguage?
+
* Important to extend Eclipse community around scripting languages
+
* Why do I need scripts?  Why not just inject real Java into the running workspace?
+
* How do we handle threading?
+
* What if the macro loops forever?  Does it block the UI thread forever?  What is the answer?
+
* Having a DOM model representing/aggregating all model roots is useful for Java, not just for scripting.
