[platform-dev] Performance concerns with several document plug-ins

I'm looking at scenario where I'll be deploying Eclipse running in 
Information Center mode.  The Info Center may be running a combination of 
600 to 200,000 plug-ins and fragments, depending on what customers 
install.  Understandably, I'm concerned that this may affect performance. 
Does anyone have any idea how many plug-ins Eclipse can reasonably handle 
before performance starts suffering?  Would the effects be limited to 
start-up time, as several hundred plugin.xml and fragment. xml files are 
parsed, or would performance over the entire run of the application be 
affected?  Is there anything that could be done to improve performance in 
this case, like increasing the JVM heap size?
