I am migrating an 3.x app, which requires 3.x workbench images typically
obtained as:

ISharedImages sharedImages = PlatformUI.getWorkbench().getSharedImages();

Now, I researched the topic a bit in relation to e4 and my conclusion
sofar is:

1) The images are in org.eclipse.ui and not available as such in pure e4.
2) The images are made available through the org.eclipse.ui.workbench
and there is no equivalent to expose them in pure e4.

woudn't it be nice to expose these images, and potentially other
resources from 3.x through an e4 tools IResourceProviderService ?
This could reside in it's own plugin or.... (I let the experts decide on
where it should go).

For now, I have made such a plugin, which now exposes the workbench

You can find it here:

I wouldn't mind hacking this into the official e4 release or tools some
place, but would need some advise on where this goes?

This probably belongs to platform/ui.
