It probably isn't urgent. I will only be providing Win32 binaries so if I
have to do something custom I will. What I expected to do was just defer
making the binaries available and come up with a way to get them via the
Subclipse site or something so that we bypass Eclipse for now. There have
been a lot of changes made in trunk for 1.5 that we want anyway. So I
might try to make 1.5 a requirement for the version we make available from
Eclipse. The really biggie for us are the copy/move improvements, but
there are several others too.
