Someone had forked SWTBot to add RMI support in order to do just this.
They were building some plugins for pair programming and needed to
orchestrate 2 eclipse instances from within one test.

The fork is available at: https://github.com/szuecs/swtbot. It is
slightly out of date, but you should be able to apply those patches to
current master.

From prior testing, this form of testing is very very brittle given
the number of moving parts. I'd suggest keeping it to a bare minimum.
