Why would you need all that inside an IDE? There are plenty of external tools you can use for that

As sommeone who has worked on big corporate projects who do actually use process, I can tell you it is necessary, the "Type and Compile" style of IDE is not for every need.

Because that's the whole point - and what the I in IDE stands for - of an Integrated development environment as opposed to a tricked-out text editor.

"Integrated" doesn't mean it should include all the features under the sun in it. Only the features you need to produce code (edit, code complete, build, deploy, debug).
