No I wasn't aware of it. The only reference I found after a quick search was in the 2012-1-8 RInside news file.  I think that it would have to be incorporated into Eclipse's build system (not executed as an external tool) in order for all the features I mentioned in the post to work. My understanding is that there is an automatic cmake --> eclipse project converter, but I have not tried it.
