The binary plugs are tightly coupled with the source tree for a given build.
Mix-and-match probably won't work.

I'll ask about that.  The binary plugs .jar file is under a different license
than what you get in the openjdk-7-ea-src-b*.zip file, so that could have something
to do with the separation.
