I would be against this. currently to fix eclipse i just copy the
.classpath file to /dev-tools/eclipse/dot.classpath and commit. This
makes it significantly harder.
Additionally I don't see how this could possibly work: a "standalone"
solr would use lucene jar files since it doesnt include the lucene
Because of this, a "top-level" dev-tools eclipse configuration would
not be the composition of lucene+solr, instead it would be a totally
different thing.

So I don't think this is useful: dev-tools is for developers, and
developers are all using the big /trunk checkout, so we don't need
dev-tools at a lower level, for no good reason.

Honestly I could care less about making it easy for someone to
configure lucene or solr by itself in their IDE. I did the eclipse
work (for example) to make it easier for people to contribute to
lucene/solr, I could care less about making it easier for people to
configure their "own private copies" of lucene or solr easier, and I'm
definitely not going to let it make it *harder* on us to support
contributions (the top-level /dev-tools).

This is becoming a slippery slope fast... Uwe's perspective is
starting to become much more attractive.
