Okay, but I think a lot of our Java users are developers. Anyway, maybe
just clojure from that list. derby seems like something users might like
to use too.

I think of them as modules or configurations of Eclipse.  PTP
assembles/provides tools for parallel application development and
debugging.  WTP is a collection of tools focused on web development.  In
any event, our overall version of eclipse still lags, so perhaps it's
not worth mentioning them.

Not to my knowledge.
