Sorry. I live in New Hampshire and we were without power for many
days. I saw your message during this period and forgot to reply.

We did this earlier and it led to problems so we removed it. If the
feature is working better, we can try again. Scripts would be good.
I build Subclipse using Eclipse 3.2, so I cannot use the built-in
features in 3.4 to generate the files.

I recall that one of the problems is that the update site contains the
JARs for older releases and this seems to mess up the p2 metadata
scripts.
