I've been using the build from last night actively for about six hours 
now with the PHPeclipse plugin and it's been working very well; nothing 
unusual to report at all.

Perhaps someone with a bit more Java knowledge can comment on the 
warnings generated and someone closer to the Eclipse release team might 
be able to resolve the confusion with build.xml.  (Although I'm still 
asking around and digging.)  It may just be that the file wasn't updated 
to reflect changes for the 3.3 release... the verbiage between the 3.2 
and 3.3 versions is almost identical, except version numbering.

All in all, I'd have to say congratulations to Ken and Dan for a 
successful port!  I'll be running it on both my work machines and will 
report in if anything comes up... and will keep an eye on the list.

Nice work chaps!
