I just tried this.

1) Load eclipse with numerous plugins (UML editing, WTP, AOP Builder,
Maven plugins, SVN plugin, KonsoleStart plugin, Profile plugin)
2) open a jsp file (cntrl-shift-r some.jsp)
3) make a quick <h1>hello<h1>
4) click save

24.31 seconds

1) ssh username at host
2) cd /usr/local/dev/tomcat-www/node1/webapps/wapps/myapp/WEB-INF/jsp
3) vi some.jsp
4) make a quick <h1>hello<h1>
5) :wq

30.93 seconds

I called your bluff.

Eclipse will be even faster as the fix because more complex and you
need typing long function/method names (Autocompletion etc etc etc).
