For me the real problem is dealing with all the id's that are used to hook things together. If we used real Java inheritance and getters/setters and JDT's content assist, it would be a lot easier. The other thing I've run into is the need for dynamic toolchain definitions. There are some mechanisms in the XML to add in hooks but being all in Java would allow you do much more.
Hmm, and I thought by the time the XML format was introduced (was that
in CDT 2.x or 3.x?), that it would make an toolchain setup much easier
by just adapting the XML file, rather than hardcoding the build chain
in a Java-only plugin.

Interesting discussion... :). I'm definitely on the side
doing a more flexible/dynamic tool chain integration mechanism that
allows for the complete definition in Java. As always, contributions
