Why? There is nothing confidential in the information. Just basic
stuff like the OS, Java version and Eclipse version.

We currently build using Java 1.4 and support the Eclipse 3.2 API.
This places a burden on development process and based on information
already gathered, I think we could consider moving the bar forward on
these requirements. But the more data we gather the better informed
we will be in making those decisions.

It is a plugin included in the main Subclipse feature. So I believe
you would have to customize the feature to not include that plugin if
you do not want to install it.

I believe the decision you supply when prompted is stored in a
preference. So if you could initialize the preference you could
probably avoid being asked (users could still change the preference
though). Not sure how you could automate that though.
