Re: [equinox-dev] [prov] p2 3.4 plan

The user interface in which this will be surfaced is still unclear,
especially given that we don't want to confuse the user with multiple
profiles when he/she only needs to know about the currently running one.
I can think of two places where several profiles could be shown:
- in a administrative style UI if we decide to have such a thing
- in a p2 aware target provisioner, where the user could see the different
installs it has.

Pascal, since this item was listed under "User interaction" I'm wondering
what this means for the UI.  The "end user" UI manages the "self" profile
and doesn't currently allow a user to point it at anything else.  The admin
UI lets you manage multiple profiles but I've definitely been treating it
as a tool for developers, not as a polished end-user tool.

What does this line item mean to the UI's currently being built?
