Are these eclipse plugins similar to mozilla plugins in that the user 
has to take an additional step after the FreeBSD package is added, or if 
the package is on the system then it's available to all the users 
immediately?  If the latter, then I can understand why having FreeBSD 
packages of them would be valuable. If they are similar to mozilla 
plugins then I'm curious what the value-add is.
