Unless I am wrong, the only way this could be done is if the common parent
was checked out, outside of Subclipse, into a local folder. And the
individual projects were then imported into Eclipse. Am I correct? I
would love to see this feature implemented. I currently do this by
committing outside of Subclipse when I want to do it.

I have never really even used this view. I was thinking of someday
suggesting we dump it, but I probably never would :) No, I do not have
any ideas how one would do this.
