I can live with that.
I have been proposing this change for about 43 years, so please
consider it "proposed" for appreciation in the mtg :-)

Note that we need to handle Ant builds too.
My 2 cents - I suffer enough from maven central containing random stuff under random
groupId:artifactId so if upstream doesn't ship pom.xml to define the
groupId:artifactId, putting jars in maven repo like structure can only make things worse
for cases where upstream hasn't thought about that at all.
