I'll have a look when WTP 0.7 (the official 3.1 supporting version) is
release next week.
How's the FC4 update to Eclipse 3.1 coming along?

That's great. I had no idea you packaged it up so flexible ;)
Does that mean there are no "hacks" in the Eclipse packages to make it
run on gcj? (there are a lot of patches in de Eclipse SRPM)

Well, the Eclipse guys say so:
Maybe you could try to get them to mention gcj as a runtime alternative?

I understand it's slower and it will get better, but for users not
interested in testing the gcj based version it's hard to justify not
running it on a JVM that runs about twice as fast.
(based on my totally unscientific measurements of clocking startup time)
But thanks for the assurance ;) - I'm really impressed with the FC4
Java stack and hoping to see gcj becoming a good alternative to the
