No work has been done on a TPTP package AFAIK.  Coincidentally, I just
read an account of their currently horrible installation experience:



Way back in about Fedora 5 or 6 timeframe the profiler just worked (if you managed to install the C compiler compat stuff) using the built in agent controller.

In newer versions of Eclipse and Fedora the built in agent controller has been broken. The workaround is to install the external agent controller, and admittedly the instructions for doing so make it a bit of a pain.

To make matters worse, if you go to the preferences and run the 'test' to see if the built in controller works, it sometimes says it works (when it doesn't) or provides a rather useless error message.

Of all the plugins that aren't installed, this is my favorite vote for being a part of the core package.
