That¹s true to a certain extent. But platform fixes don¹t get you Gradle
support in Andmore, for example :). Or does/should it? Very similar to the
XML editor discussion happening now on eclipse-dev.
In the past, there has seemed to be an artificial barrier that IDE things
shouldn¹t end up in the Platform, only things that the IDE shares with
RCP. But then the Resources and Debug plug-ins are platform which teaches
us that that wasn¹t always true.
In fact, people point at e4 being the end. I can make a plausible argument
that RCP was really the end ;).
