At Max's suggestion on IRC, I am going to work up a sample.

There would be 2, perhaps 3 small files directly under trunk, and then a
.settings folder directly under trunk with a few more files in it.

Part of this is based on the idea of being able to use the Eclipse C/C++
tooling at least a little bit. I am evaluating that a little more to see if
it is at all worth it right now. For example, I want to see if I can
configure the editor so that someone does not have to fight against it to
write code that is formatted the way it is wanted. In the Java editor, this
is definitely the case, but in the C editor, not as sure right now.

So let me work this idea up a little further and come back with more solid
information.
