Sorry if I wasn't clear. I'll try to explain again:

1) Based on your link, I'll create a new Eclipse dummy project and copy .project, etc. to my working copy on my filesystem (e.g. c:\myWC).
2) I'll import the existing project from c:\myWC and now see a new Project "MyProj" in the "Project Explorer". All contents present under c:\myWC are now visible in MyProj. Decorations are present and the Team menu shows "Update" and other options when right-clicking any versioned file/directory.
3) Due to the large number of files in c:\myWC, MyProj also has a large number of files in the project root, and I do not want them visible everytime I expand the MyProj project. I want to create a new "MyProj/src" folder in my the Project Explorer and move files/dirs from the project root into it. I do not want to see a new src folder in c:\wc on my filesystem not do I want it under version control. I simply want to organize my Eclipse project files differently than the working copy and continue using Subclipse on these files afterwards.
6) Based on your comment about Virtual/Linked Folders, this appears not possible in Subclipse.

>Subclipse cannot support virtual folders or linked folders.
Ok. I want to organize my Project folders differently than the filesystem layout. The underlying method is not too important to me. It is a bit strange that all Subclipse features disappear when moving files around in the project or when importing into a different Project folder than the root (e.g. create MyProj/src then import). The latter is particularly unintuitive. Should I file a feature request?
