One thing that really is a restriction is the folder structure pde
forces you into. Because of some magic when starting eclipse inside
itself pde requires resource folders to be in the source path and
META-INF/ and plugin.xml to reside in the root (although OSGi only wants
that structure in your _binary distribution_).
That makes developing with tools that impose a different structure (e.g.
maven) a PITA.
