I think it is a bit premature to make this a full fledged  
subproject.  I personally don't use eclipse so I don't know if it  
builds, or is what users want.  For now, I think the sandbox is  
appropriate place to incubate the code and community.   We need to be  
careful when creating subprojects, so we don't end up with lots of  
abandoned codebases.  I guessing this will happen quickly for the  
eclipse plugin given how many eclipse users there are out there and  
we will be better off for waiting a bit.
