[TYPO3-core] SVN + Eclipse + .project

Those who use Eclipse with SVN for typo3 development could notice that 
Eclipse shows TYPO3 project as always modified. This happens due to 
".project" file that Eclipse creates.

It is possible to get rid of such warning by adding ".project" to 
svn:ignore. However, this is not a file as .cvsignore but a property of 
repository, thus should be committed there as well.

I would be happy if we could fix issue with "always modified" status for 
Eclipse users. Depending on votes, opinions and number of people, who 
use Eclipse, I see three choices:
- do nothing and have "always modified" in Eclipse (worst)
- add ".project" file to svn:ignore and commit this change to SVN. This 
will not affect those who does not use Eclipse. However if we later go 
for choice 3, I am not sure how to undo inclusion into "svn:ignore"
- add ".project" file to SVN. Worth only if most people use Eclipse for 
core development. This file should not be included to build packages.

Personally I would prefer step 2 because it helps Eclipse people and 
does not affect others (including packaging). Also project file changes 
sometimes, so better to have it off the SVN.

Change (if we agree on change) should go to two active branches: HEAD 
and TYPO3-4_0.

What do you think?
