[eclipse-pmc] API Request: Rendering resource folders in JARs

Right now, non-Java resources in JARs can only be IStorages, which cannot
represent folders.
We would like to add a new interface IJarEntryResource that would be the
implicit type of non-Java resources in JARs.
It would represent both folders and files for non-Java resources in the
Java model.

This will allow clients to navigate the non-Java resources tree inside JARs
as easily as the non-Java resources tree in the workspace.

need to render resource folders in JARs -

Minimal risks. Clients assuming that non-Java resources are files only will
get what would appear as an empty file for a folder.
However this assumption should not have been made in the first place
according to the existing API.
