IDEs compatibility?

Is it so hard to create common java projects layout, so EVERY IDE can export/import to it ? I'm a little frustrated why WE don't support such idea. Is it so hard one manager to call others of Netbeans,Eclipse, MyEclipse, JDeveloper, JBuilder, IntelliJ etc. just for a talk ? I realize the "fears" of not free IDE, but even Eclipse <-> Netbeans convert is awlful.

Virtually every IDE out there uses an XML file format to store their project info. There's nothing stopping you from writing project conversion utilities that work the way you'd like. Write them, and share them with the world, if you choose.
