It is almost certain that we will not make use of the IDE support for 
gradle on the first go round.  There are many moving part and it is 
critical that people be able to work right away after the switch over.  
The IDE's *worked* but there were issues with proxies, builds going away 
for a long time, strange exceptions etc.  We'll revisit this after 
everyone is back working again.

By Monday we will ensure that contributors and committers can build and 
work in the open.  It'll be a bit rough, but we'll all be better for it.
