Subclipse does both. We notify Eclipse but then we ask Eclipse to
refresh your project. There are scenarios with merge and switch where
if we do not do this, then all the decorators do not refresh.
Generally, even on a very large project if it is all in synch with
Eclipse a refresh does not take long. For example, after doing a
merge, right-click on the same project and choose the Refresh option.
It should run fairly quickly. There is no reason the refresh after
the merge should take a long time either, but if you have done
something like an external build using Ant, then it can.

We tried to remove the refresh duing the 1.1.x release cycle but new
problems quickly were reported and we put it back.
