Well here's the problem.

You both have 2 packages which mean something to you, and you seem to be
technical enough. What's keeping you from packaging Eclipse 3.3? What's
keeping you from packaging the latest 'trailing-edge' of Plone?

That's right. Nothing is.

If you had packaged these things, submitted to the dev team, and it's
still not available -- that's an entirely different story and I
apologize. Somehow I suspect that is not the case.
