I’m with the gang that uses multiple workspaces to work on different branches of a repo, as I do with CDT master and CDT the last release in maintenance. I can’t have them in the same workspace and switch between them since they do have different target files and switching those is usually a nightmare.
Keep in mind that .target file is something the vast majority of developers (99%) don't know nor care about. When discussing about the IDE, we should focus on other mainstream personas: Java Enterprise dev (JEE or Spring), C/C++ dev, JS developer, Android developer... The PDE developer persona should not be our main target when we take such decision.
However, as preferences are package specific, we could imagine different behaviors for the different packages/targets.
