That makes sense. The console example was never in the coordinated
releases, except in the form of a workspace-project-installer wizard in
the OCL SDK feature.
The main reason why the console is not a first-class component of the
SDK is that the committer team cannot afford to support it. In part,
this is a resource issue, and in part, it is because the console is
lacking some rather essential capabilities. The enhancement request
that I referenced, and the patch attached to it, are a step towards
solving that problem.
