I don't know of  any as sophisticated as what you are proposing.  My 
suggestion for #2 is actually in conflict with #3. I'd like to have some 
more boilerplates to chose from, in that it would be great to have a 
wizard that says, this plugin needs an options page, it modifies posts, 
or is a widget that needs options or any of a number of standard plugin 
actions and then have it create the basic code structure for you to 
build on and modify the properties of in the IDE.

I'd love to see it once you get some basic functionality in...
