Is there any reason to not just create a Google Code project or
something like that to host it? Even one on tigris. If you need this
plugin in FindBugs etc. why wouldn't you just host and/or bundle the
plugin along with those?

My main concern is that whenever we add an optional plugin there is a
cost to pay. Users never seem to understand that optional plugins are
"optional". As soon as I put this up, we will have users of the PHP
or C++ Eclipse packages posting messages that they cannot install
Subclipse because it requires JDT and they do not have it.
