I believe .classpath and .project are files that belong to Eclipse IDE, 
i.e. are generated by Eclipse.
Netbeans will generate other files, IntelliJ other files, and so on. 
This is why it's better not to include them in SVN.
The only exceptions I believe are when it would be much more difficult 
for the user to setup a project, or when those files are required to be 
able to build it: and that's  just not the case with Java based projects :).

Even if you use Eclipse, when working on Click itself, I believe it's 
better to setup the your own projects as you like, or you can model them 
after the ANT build.xml file, or if you are a Maven fan, than you can 
let Maven generate them.
