Subject Re: About Gradle, Kotlin and Inner Fear

I suspect a deep knowledge of the inner workings of Eclipse would be required.  You could always
take a look at the code on GitHub [1] and see if you can make sense of it. Although, it may
not be as dead as we have been led to believe (I personally use IntelliJ) as it looks like
that latest SNAPSHOT was released Mar 4, 2016.

language, like extension methods or static builders are first class language features. The
issue is, IDE support for Groovy is lacking (Groovy Eclipse is dead, IntelliJ needs to know
specifics of static Gradle/Groovy scripts, ...)
