Summary0000138: Create generation project from a template project

Conceptually similar to ASMifier - takes a project or a set of projects and creates a code generation project or model and resources which simply duplicate the content of the template project.

As there are many ways to generate content and there might be many files in a template project, having a wizard or a model asking about the generation type for each artifact would be too tiresome. Therefore the templatizer shall simply copy all the content of the template project(s), except the output folder, and configuration/metadata such as .settings directory, .project file and .classpath to template/<project name> folder (to accommodate for possibly multiple projects) and use bundle resource generators (content reference). For Java sources create package fragments and compilation units.

The code generation developer then would change the generators to appropriate type, e.g. convert some of the copied resources to templates.

Implement as a new wizard. It doesn't have to take the project as the top level element - it can be any resource or collection of resources. The wizard shall provide a selection tree and take ISelection into account by pre-checking the selected objects.
