I think they've been waiting for Eclipse 3.0 release to finally freeze
the SCM API.

same here - I've been thinking about adding multiproject support for a 
long time, but since it's very easy to just edit the top-level 
.classpath file, it gets pushed way down the line of  priorities.

only MAVEN_REPO should be needed.
The only problem with checking in the project files is that .classpath
holds both the jars and the src dirs info.
And if one puts in the top-level excalibur root, one gets swamped with
both jars and src dirs.
Perhaps a good compromise is checking in the files only for the
excalibur components/containers which have subcomponets/subprojects.

eg for fortress it would be at the
excalibur/fortress and it would cater for all its components/sub-projects.
Likewise, for other biggies, etc ...
