They are very small XML files, and there are only a few of them. They just
have Eclipse settings, so for example I could check it out and the JavaHL
bindings would already be configured as the location for Java code and the
JUnit JAR file would be in the path for building.
Eclipse also has C/C++ support. I would do some initial setup for this so
people could try it, but it would probably need some tweaking to let you
build and debug in Eclipse. Again, just some XML and other plain text
files. Right now, it is 3 XML files total. All small. Once we configured
rules for code formatting etc. There would be a .settings folder added
under this same location and it would have a few more XML files.
