Oh BTW, one more thing, a bit of an aside: the Immediate/Asynchronous Auto-Save submission I wrote ( https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=487653 ) has the main purpose of simplifying the language server/client interaction, by entirely removing the need to report dirty buffers to the language server.

It should make it easier to implement a language server. However if a language server wants to implement a full protocol like VSCode's (and thus fully support any IDE/client, not just Eclipse), it would need to support dirty buffer management regardless.. (this is called the "document truth" in the VSCode protocol)

Ooops, this was supposed to be sent to the "Code editors in the Eclipse (IDE)" thread.
