"It's just the efficiency and time savings of using a CMS are very attractive to a busy webmaster/business owner." - That is true in my case. Since switching from a proprietary website I built to WordPress I only tinker with it.
"It doesn't really matter what you use to make a website, whatever you're most comfortable and productive with is the best choice." - I agree, but there is nothing on the market it seems at the moment.
If you take the above together, then what I seem to want is a program that will do most of the laborious and repetitive coding itself, as Ultradev did. I currently have Dreamweaver CS5, but it is not fit for purpose today in the age of CMSs as others say.
So what I'd like is a WordPress IDE. And if one goes further a Facebook IDE. I don't know too much about Eclipse, other than it is difficult to install! Could extensions to do these be added to it though?
