Changing Eclipse default JVM

Would it be possible  to change the default JVM in future releases of Eclipse 
(in the file /etc/eclipse/java_home )  to a JVM from sun (if installed, if 
not display a hint ), instead of the gcj ?
Because it is really annoying that some (important) plugins i. e. subclipse 
did not work correctly with the gcj-jvm.
After changing the default-JVM into a sun-JVM it works perfect :).

I know that the sun-jvm at the moment is not as open as the gcj , but if some 
plugins did not work, it is relatively senseless.
