Re: Problem with "Use specified module name:"

It seems like svn:externals would do the job. Just create a separate
folder for each project with the folders it depends on in svn:externals
and then make a team project set for import. I haven't used subclipse
with externals before but I would say if it doesn't do the right thing,
then it's a bug.

As far as justifying the change to your team, what's to justify? I
mean, if you set it up and and test it the only difference to them will
be that they do a "import team project set" instead of running an ant
script.
