I asked the Eclipse legal team about the license and they said:

"Any source code put into our SCMs has to be EPL. We have to get board
approval for any dual-licensing scheme.

FWIW, BSD is a template license. You'll have to post the actual license
they're planning to use. 

I took a quick look through the file attached to the first message and
found that states that is it GPL in the header."

So I guess the unit test framework will be more difficult.  The scons
builder is pure EPL, right?
