Beats me. Personally, I'm not much in favor of this new "feature". It
would be different if Eclipse provided some functionality to flatten the
jars into one but that's not what's happening. As it stands now I think
that: what you gain in disk space is lost in memory consumption. You'll
need to unpack the stuff at some point anyway right? I also think you
loose performance at boot time since you make life harder for the
classloaders.

It might look pretty and give you a warm fuzzy feeling when looking in
the plugins directory but I don't think there's any gain whatsoever for
the end user. And for the developer? Well, as we see here, it simply
doesn't work.
