In general, I find that Eclipse's ".project" file is generally not too
useful, and on occasion (at least for the Eclipse meant for Java),
can sometimes cause problems. I personally think it shouldn't be
included in SVN at all. I generally ends up there by mistake b/c
Eclipse usually checks it in. But personally, I don't think it belongs.
It has more to do with what plugins you are using in Eclipse than
the project itself.
As for Visual Studio's '.cproject', that's a bit different as it at
least has some information about the actual project.
