An interesting read, but can be extremely overwhelming to grasp. I
think I took 3 or 4 passes of the whole class spaces section before I
got it.

:-)  Yes, Eclipse isn't the 'best citizens' of OSGi world.

Go look at the Pax tools at http://wiki.ops4j.org to do decent
IDE-independent OSGi development.
For instance, Pax Runner even includes an Eclipse plugin (formerly
called Pax Cursor in separate project) that can run Eclipse RCP's
better than Eclipse itself, i.e. you can select and launch the RCP
under any of the supported frameworks (Felix, Knopflerfish, Equinox
and Concierge) in any version available of the selected framework.

Anyway, if you guys want to make Pivot OSGi-friendly, then I can help
you out quite a bit. But I will not have an opinion whether you should
or should not do it at all.
