I think you are right, I got a bit confused there. The feature used to
now work at all, but does in the newer Eclipse 3 builds (although not the
most current one). However, I do not think it can share to a "deep URL"
for lack of a better description.

What I have always done is use Tortoise to create the initial import, and
then use Subclipse to check back out.

Here is a message and thread about this recently:
