Create plugins for eclipse Classic instead of doing your own version of eclipse for RDI.

RDI is at the moment not able to install correctly without errors on macOS Big Sur. It even required you to change chmod on install directories to just get it startet. Eclipse Classic has no problems with this, it also has a much more smooth installation procedure especially on macOS, but also on windows. It is also far more frequently updated.
Would it not be easier and smoother for everyone if you made the RDI functionality as plugins to Eclipse classic?

Use Case:

Install eclipse classic (no installation manager needed), go to install new software, type in RDI plugin repository link -> install.
