So I'm aware I can "Associate and Open Files" in Eclipse from the command-line:

I've also found Eclipse could compare (diff), or perform a 3-way merge on any external files:

I would like to have the possibility to open a 3-way merge from the command-line - is it currently possible, maybe using an existing plug-in? This appears possible with IntelliJ IDEA at least:

That is, I would like to configure Eclipse as an external merge tool to command-line version control clients like SVN, Git or Mercurial. I use these much more often than the available Eclipse integrations. The SVN (Subversive) plug-in is practically unusable for being so slow. Nevertheless, I've got used to the merge tool in Eclipse quite a bit. Its two-pane mode (with optional ancestor preview pane) for performing a three-way merge is quite simple to comprehend and use compared to more sophisticated 3-way merge tools like Kdiff3, for example.
