A console tool to build code with different development platforms

I'm currently working on cross platform build tool named PlatformIO. It has pre-built Atmel AVR GCC toolchain & avrdude for Mac, Linux 32/64 & Windows OS. It can be easy integrated to many IDEs. See article: Building and debugging Atmel AVR (Arduino-based) project using Eclipse IDE+PlatformIO.

  1. How often do you use external standalone toolchain to build your code? In which case?
  2. What is your favourite IDE+Toolchain?
  3. What would you like to have in PaltformIO tool?

Thanks a lot for answers!
