I agree with Ross. I use a "split view" very often. Every time you use a new API, I open the header to have a look at it.

As long as you don't have alternatives like some hover notes with (for example) the doxygen / javadoc comment like in Ecplise, a "split view" is IMO more than a "nice to have".

What's the best color theme. I agree with you, that most theming stuff is just eye candy. But in this case, I think it is a must have. For example, I prefer a darker background color. I don't like white. It's to bright for me.

Nevertheless, the configuration features currently available are good enough. At least for me. May be someone writes a GUI for it.

That's a feature for windows users only. ;-)

It's bright, it twinkles, it must be good. ;-)
