Hadn't seen that ...

Right. FWIW, what I would like to have is emacs in eclipse. I still
want all the happy views, the markers, quick fixes, refactoring
commands, Call Hierarchy, etc. I also want the availability of the
graphical editors (sometimes). But I also want the option to open a
file in an editor that is ... emacs! I.e. not just the right
keybindings, it should have

* a minibuffer, from which I can run elisp normally

* elisp (lack of scripting is IMHO the biggest weakness with eclipse
  right now)

It would be basically my current emacs frame either

* running in the eclipse editor space, with eclipse providing the
  markers in the right and left border (the minibuffer could steal the
  space currently occupied by the tabs). This is what I visualize when
  I say "wrapper": emacs inside eclipse.

* running outside the eclipse frame (as it does now) but communicating
  with eclipse, e.g. getting and understanding the necessary marginal
  inputs from eclipse and displaying them in its own margins. This
  sounds like what RemoteEclipse is starting toward ... hafta take a
  closer look at that ...
