In Java the CPlistElement has
	public static final String OUTPUT= "output"; //$NON-NLS-1$


but dltk's BPListElement doesn't have it.
I'd like to be able to create a buildpath entry similar to the classpath entry
	<classpathentry kind="output" path="bin"/>


in other words
	<buildpathentry kind="output" path="bin"/>


Has anybody dealt with this kind of problem before?
I'm extending DLTK's ProjectCreator, taking over the initBuildPath method ... doesn't seem to be available in there.

In much of org.eclipse.dltk.internal.core.ScriptProject you see the following kinds of comments:
/**
 * Saves the buildpath in a shareable format (VCM-wise) only when necessary,
 * that is, if it is semantically different from the existing one in file.
 * Will never write an identical one.
 * 
 * @param newBuildpath
 *            IBuildpathEntry[]
 * @param newOutputLocation
 *            IPath
 * @return boolean Return whether the .buildpath file was modified.
 * @throws ModelException
 */
public boolean saveBuildpath(IBuildpathEntry[] newBuildpath)


newOutputLocation ... yet there never is an argument for it, it's never encoded nor decoded.

I can manually add
	<buildpathentry kind="src" path="src" output="bin"/>

to the .buildpath, it validates but the output attribute is never collected anywhere.

This is a problem for me, I need to be able to do this. How is it that the outputlocation is in the comments, but never in the code?
