Am I?  I don't think so.  I am not talking about general use of 
subversion, I am talking about use of svn to manage jakarta-commons 
projects.  The only problematic use case I've found with subeclipse is 
adding a project to a repository.  (Of course, there may be others I 
haven't hit yet).  That is clearly not something the ordinary 
jakarta-commons committer like myself is going to be doing everyday. 
When I do something more than committing changes or updating (such as 
preparing a release), I don't use eclipse at all, even for CVS, but 
follow the command line scripts on the jakarta-commons website.
