Why not just install from our update site or download the zipped update
site?

It will definitely never be part of Eclipse. There are places where you
can build your own Eclipse bundle and then it downloads it all for you. I
think these sites include Subclipse as an option but I do not use any of
them. Installing from our update site (which the Marketplace Client
eventually does as well) will be faster. I only have a 3 MB connection and
it only takes a minute for me.
