Well, unpacking it is useful if you want to change & rebuild or even
just look at the original source.  In that case it's convenient to
have it in its own source directory, IMO.

On the other hand, if we need to keep the directory structure the same
to maximize compatibility with Eclipse or other software, I'd rather
not do the work of creating two different releases.  It was a good
point Richard brought up that one can unpack the sources jar into a
different directory as needed.
