Placing a ViewPart in the EditorArea

Thanks to tedious investigation and great support from Remy I managed to open a 3.x ViewPart in the shared area with the compat layer on e4. Just use ...editorss and relation="stack" for your contribution as you would do with any other location. But beware that this won't be backward compatible anymore.

This gave me the possibility to rethink my whole UI structure without having to change a line of code, just some changes in the contributions.

Btw the compat layer is great, it truly makes sense to me to move to the e4 platform with any RCP product you may have and then incrementally make use of the new features. The e4 people managed to make our investment safe for the future of eclipse.
