It was originally a Java IDE and then extended. Java packages (the
directories in a java project) cannot have dots at the end since java
appends a dot between package names when referring to a class.

Presumably someone within the Eclipse devs who work on other language
support such as C++ could remove the restriction when the language
does not require it?
