Yes, I've taken a look at it... and yes, there's a possibility, but might be
difficult, as their primary target is making a framework for multiple
dynamic languages, mostly giving a head start for future implementors of
dynamic languages, whereas pydev focus is only in python... so, they are
building a base for new plugins, and as far as I know, pydev already has a
pretty solid base.
The way I see it, pydev could probably absorb some future enhancements of
dltk on places it may be lacking (as they're doing it thinking about others
reusing it), but the other way around may be difficult, because pydev is
much more specialized around python than on delivering a platform for
multiple dynamic languages.
Still, it may be a little early to talk about it -- I'm waiting until their
codebase evolves a little more to get a better feeling on what will actually
be possible or not in this scenario.
