I think that pushing an official Embedder release is something that
maybe the three teams (Buckminster, IAM and M2E) can work together.

IAM is using the embedder as the runtime for every operation, while M2E
is not using it so much in favor of external maven executions (as I read).

The embedder is external to eclipse, so it's "officially" the focus of
any project, but the three will benefit from it.

Jason, maybe you can "draw the line" and we can help in pushing the
embedder towards it? Having a roadmap would also help.

Also, it would be useful to have the embedder bundle pushed into Eclipse

I'm cross posting this to the IAM group so we all stay on the same page
regarding possible collaboration.
