If you use a hook, to put the heptrc window in place, then the whole 
thing would run in the user app => put an instance of the heaptrc window 
in the uswer app can not control the ide to jump anywhere => so no use.

IMHO the IDE should by default set the enviromane so the heaptrc gets 
written to a file in the project dir (which is cleared by the IDE 
before). Then the IDE can pick it up...
