There is? Would someone mind sending me the URI? I keep failing to get
round to installing the IDEA plugin and I don't have a busy weekend

Am I right in thinking it's solely a patents / IP issue that prevents
IDEA being in there by default? I know someone's answered this for me
before (prolly more than once), I just forget. Sorry all :o)
