Hold on a second... I have no problems that Eclipse provide superior 
plugin/bundle build tools, just like I don't feel I have problems building my 
own bundles, using my own tools.

What I find 'irritating' is that the OSGi platform itself require such 
advanced tooling. I don't generally have Eclipse downloaded, and find it 
"amuzing" that [Product A]t0 has a dependency on [Product A]t-n.

Well, instead of complaining so much about, I'll dig in and see how hard this 
could possibly be...
