Bug 526011 - PDE should provide an abstraction above
annotation-configuration in .classpath

* introduce new manifest header Eclipse-ExportExternalAnnotations

* if set to true, resolved entries in Required-Plugins will define
  their annotationPath equal to the plugin location

This suffices to help JDT/Core to use these annotations for null
analysis, if .eea files are shipped with the plug-in jar.

We even have content assist for the new header :)
