There quite a popular bug to fix this in Eclipse (https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=46336), I'm wondering why you didn't contribute to the IDE directly rather than create a separate plugin. ;)

For those reasons:
1) The bug report:
a) After I had read the bug discussion, it wasn't clear to me how they wanted it exactly. There are comments about switching to the initial perspective, but comment 33 it says it should switch to the perspective set in the preferences.
b) It seems to be a very long process. In 2011 there was a patch submitted but it took more than 4 months for someone to look at it. After that nothing happened.
2) I am not familiar with the eclipse internals.
I feared that it might take too long or get bogged down.
By doing it as a plugin it's faster out there (and can be used with older eclipse versions).
If the behavior of the plugin is close enough to what the maintainers want, I would be willing to attempt to write a patch for it.
I thought it would be good to get some feedback and bug reports for the plugin first.
