Re: [equinox-dev] Incubator commit rights for Kim Horne

I am now doubting myself. I really like the feel of this solution. Augmenting the builder to process bundle resources seems so much more elegant than inserting transformation points at N levels of the runtime. Other than the loss of transformations based on runtime state (a dubious asset at best) the main drawback I can see is how it would affect the shell sharing scenario. If multiple logical products use the same bundles it'd be impossible to have product- level customizations.

Also, does the transformation need to be done at runtime? It seems the use
cases are all packaging issues in assembling an RCP based product. Why not
just have support for transformation at packaging time instead of runtime.
This will then remove the runtime variability which can cause
stability/debugging issues.
