After a quick try, I decided to skip the emacs keybindings.  It masked
Ctrl-SPC, which is possibly the most important keybinding in eclipse
(and I didn't stay with the emacs keybinding long enough to find out
what, if anything the content assist command was bound to).  

Also, in my experience it's always easier to go with the default
keybindings for all programs.  They it's easier to ask for assistance,
or google up information.

So did I.  So what I ended up doing, was to use emacsclient as an editor
in eclipse, and when I wanted to do editing in emacs (typically advanced
search and replace, or use keyboard macros for complex repetitive tasks)
then I used emacsclient to get the file into emacs for editing.

I did most of my version control work in emacs.
