Say I have a plugin which works with a recent copy of Eclipse. Is it possible to also launch an older version of the application with my plugin and it's unit tests? Perhaps the same executable can be used but with older modules so it behaves like another version. Can it be automated so several versions are tested together? I feel that just having multiple installs running would be a waste, I wouldn't want to have to develop in each and constantly switch between them.

You could use target platforms, one for each version of Eclipse.
