OK. I think we can agree that steps 1 and 2 have nothing to do with
the rest of this? You could also have done a checkout from Subclipse
as starting point.

> 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.

You definitely cannot do this. I do not believe Eclipse itself even
offers a way to do this.

Subclipse is behaving correctly. It allows you to have these types of
resources in your project but then ignores them. This is what Eclipse
calls being "link friendly" in the documentation for this feature:
