While developing an Eclipse facet, I found that any additional files you want to distribute with your plugin can be packaged up in the same JAR file.  For instance, if I have a templated file layout that I want to use with my plugin (say I’m extending a project creation wizard) I can put any additional files I need in a sub-directory within my plugin project, and when exporting as a JAR file these files are included.  Plus, when the plugin is used, Eclipse treats that JAR as a directory and accesses the additional files without any issues.  Very nice.
