#293 Request interface for initializing pydev interpreter

When creating a new project, eclipse-pydev prompts the user to set up a python/jython interpreter in the Pydev settings which default to empty. I am requesting that a documented interface be set up so that a package (e.g. eclipse-pydev for Fedora) can provide defaults on behalf of the end-user. For example, an extension point could be added or a special file could optionally be defined.

    Cf. JDT support that defines an extension point for this:

    <extension point="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.vmInstalls">
    <vmInstall
    home="${eclipse_home}/jre"
    id="com.example.vm.id"
    name="JRE-1.4"
    vmInstallType="com.example.vm.type"/>
    </extension>

    A tricky part is how to make sure that first scanning of files in this platform does not happen at wrong moment (blocking some user action).
