I was able to successfully build the update site and install
into Eclipse 3.5.  I tested the CDE and JCasGen, seems to work
fine.  Joern, what's a good way to quickly test the CAS Editor?

To make this work, I had to do the following:

- Manually copy the CAS Editor plugin jar from where it's built
  to the update site's plugin directory.  All other plugin jars
  are copied there automatically.

- Remove the UIMA-AS target.

After that it worked like a charm.
