It's already there:

"Please note that this update changes the filesystem layout
of some of the packages and users will have to run eclipse
once with '-clean' after the update is complete.
Alternately, users may remove the configuration in
~/.eclipse (i.e. rm -r ~/.eclipse). If there are
non-packaged plugins installed in ~/.eclipse, please run
eclipse with the -clean' option to ensure that these plugins
are not lost."

But if '-clean' isn't working I'll take that text out when it goes to
updates proper.
