Settings for the different navigator views (e.g. project explorer) are persisted within the .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.e4.workbench/workbench.xmi. Does Oomph provide any help to modify that except for the text modify task? The workbench.xmi is huge and therefore just setting a tiny flag like e.g. sharedElement[@elementId="org.eclipse.ui.navigator.ProjectExplorer"]->persistedState[@key="memento"]@value="<some XML>" is quite some effort. Especially I would need to use XPath expressions to do that correctly and only touch the intended place in that workbench.xmi.

Probably I need a setup task which can act on http://help.eclipse.org/luna/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.isv%2Freference%2Fapi%2Forg%2Feclipse%2Fui%2FIMemento.html because that seems to be internally used to store navigator views.

Of course in principle anything is possible, but in practice is completely impossible to keep up with everything that needs maintaining and also with all the new things everyone would like to have...
