[dsdp-tm-dev] RE: File Cache / Memory increase when opening FTP files

I don't think it would affect the Workbench startup size,
even if "Refresh on Start" is switched on (which is not
the default), Eclipse Resource system scales without 
problem to 10.000 files and more.

But we do have enhancement requests to move that project
out of the workspace, and we'll be discussing these for
TM 3.0:

Put it outside the workspace 
([ 158770])

allow characters only valid on the remote
([ 160103])

support remote names differing only in case also on Windows
([ 160100])
