A little manual setup wont hurt much as we could announce it as alpha. But I think snipmatch should provide a waste of templates for almost all standard things (read, all templates already built-in Eclipse should be part of snipmatch too + as many new ones as possible) to make it valuable. In fact it should allow you to replace Eclipse's current templates completions.
