Counterclockwise Eclipse Plugin

I'm going to run with Counterclockwise for now, since I'm already very comfortable with Eclipse. Having had a quick play with it this evening it seems to do everything I want, and will only get better.

The list of key bindings is defined at: http://code.google.com/p/counterclockwise/wiki/EditorKeyBindingsFeatures

Balanced brackets only seem to work in strict mode on Ubuntu.

Unfortunately Ubuntu 11.04 has some system key bindings which interfere with the Counterclockwise bindings:
  • Shift-Alt-Up: bound to Compiz scale windows. Install compizconfig-settings-manager, run "ccsm", and find Scale under Window Management, and disable the key binding. 
  • Ctrl-Alt-T: launches a terminal in Eclipse. Disable via System -> Preferences -> Keyboard Shortcuts
