I put orbit in my eclipse install (by using link files to link it from
another folder) because there was some plugin that needed it and now
there are tons of conflicts with plugins that are already in the base
eclipse plugins directory (they were there when I initially installed
eclipse). There are also all kinds of conflicts with other plugins I
have outside the base plugins directory.

So I understand that this is one of the problems that orbit is trying to
address and I hope that becomes a reality but for right now, can I just
delete all the plugins from the base eclipse plugins directory that are
duplicates of what is in orbit? Is that safe to do? If a feature
includes a plugin and that plugin is not in the same folder as all the
rest of the plugins for that feature but is linked from another folder,
will it still work? What if the same type of thing was done with extensions?

Thanks for any help!

Nevermind the question. I figured it out on the newcomer forum.
Apparently, these conflicts do not stop anything from working and
eclipse will just pick one and go with it. So I don't need to do all
this messy work to get rid of plug-in conflicts.
