2. You usually also have to change the PDE target platformOK, however this is only for the PDE use-cases. Users of Java, JEE, C/C++, JS, Android packages at least are likely to never face this issue.
3. It takes *much* longer to do this than just launching a workspace that already has the desired branchOn the other side, having multiple workspaces with different branches mean that users have 2 copies of the same Git repo. I don't know how popular this practice is; I didn't see any Git documentation pushing towards such workflow.
When I try it locally on an average Git repo (9 Maven modules as projects in workspace), the "Switch to" operation only takes a couple of seconds. This seems faster that starting up Eclipse IDE. Can you elaborate on which part takes "much longer"? Are you speaking about the workspace rebuild?
