As the directory structure imposes Big->Small naming
on the ports, and this is always going to be inadequate.
Many ports will have multiple namings and multiple
ways of indexing that make lots of sense. The directory
structure gives one indexing and one name only though.
The problem is not where Eclipse or a plugin is located,
rather, it is that the directory structure cannot support
anything more complex than the simplest naming schemes.
Moving Eclipse does not change this, only improving
the search tools can help here. So what is needed
is something that deals with:
searchports eclipse plugin python
