I would like to help if I can. I'm trying to understand the scope of effort. I posted some questions on the eclipse.platform.rcp forum. My question was regarding how to get started in an effort to remove functionality and menus from eclipse. Was hoping that might be easier than creating a new plugin. I received the following advice:

"I've never seen anyone get a lot of help with un-contributing contributions through non-API approaches and that's where you're headed.   Having been there with things other than the jBPM Designer I would tell you:

Run away.  It is a suicide mission.  The jBPM Designer contributes to the Eclipse SDK and uses EMF, GEF, DTP, and WTP.   Odds are that the 'eclipse functionality' you want to remove is defined in Eclipse's own internal Java code. The side effects of changing those types of things have side effects.  Even if what you want to remove is contributed declaratively in plugin.xml or manifest files you're asking for trouble with the rest of the component stack.    Eclipse 3.4 is due in June.  A new jBPM Designer will probably not be too far behind and you'll be back at square one."
