Re: [equinox-dev] p2 update

There is nothing hard coded. 'dropins' is just the default place that we
will be searching when the dropins mechanism is enabled. Should you choose
to use another area (or even multiple) you can specify it by using a
property.

Given that Mac apps normally put extensions in these locations, it's
fairly standard places to look. Can they not be coded in by default,
even if the UI isn't there?

I thought that the point of P2 was to have less explicit dependencies
on hard-coded names like 'plugins' and 'features'. If you've got to
have another directory called 'dropins' then it's basically just
exchanged one problem for another.
