At the request of a few others on this list I spent quite a bit of time looking into doing something like this and came away shaking my head. This is quite a non-trivial exercise. Hemlock and IDE functionality are intertwined in a way that probably needs to be unraveled before what you want would be possible. Every time I tried to find an easy way to do that the changes rippled through lots of code.
