OK, "the packaged version" than it is :) It's hard to tell if there
are .so files or not...

You are right, it's not different -- it was just a small rant that was
out of context. Eclipse is an amazing application, and it sets a very
high bar, but that particular part is very poorly though out from a
usability perspective. To add insult to injury, it might be worse with
the packaged version due to the fact that some components are fixed.
But that's conjecture, all I know it's been painful. I'll detail why in
a different message.
