Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] p2 update

> What do you guys think?

Well, you already know what I think :)

But, to repeat the gist here, our WTP Prime Directive: Break no one.

Most of us are under a great deal of pressure to never, ever break our customers in any way, no matter how cool the new thing is, and when we do, for some advantage to the user, to at least give them a choice in the matter, so they don't all have to "migrate" or "buy in" to the improved way at the same time.

I think if the option was on by default (so old behavior worked) then that would be best received, exhibit the best Eclipse Citizenship, and allow people to eventually learn that if they turned it off, and used P2, that their startup performance would be much faster (I'm assuming).

And, of course, products could set their own configurations and eclipse.ini's to what they think appropriate for their customers ... and, I'd guess, by next release, next year, the default could change (if P2 is as successful as I think it will be).
