Even with that limitation, I'm excited by the new feature. It's very 
nice to have changes in my project dependencies reflected immediately.

Some downsides: it causes a resolve of every project in the workspace, 
which can be quite slow at times. I'm getting much more careful about 
closing projects which I don't need for my current work. It also makes 
figuring out the cause of the "X" error icon on a project a little 
trickier, as it can now indicate a problem in a dependency. The 
Problems View is getting much more use.

Thanks for implementing that. Once we also have a plugin for ant 
classpath contribution of ivy, the integration into Eclipse will be 
very nice.
