Sorry about that. I felt that we shoudl fix the basic package naming
before we create many more packages. Note that I see the yahoo sample
being broken into an ant specific sampel and a maven specific sample.

It would be painful to make basic package name change later compared to
earlier IMHO as there is more code to contend with.
As for merging, it will need to be functional equivalent of a replace
due to major changes to align with maven default directory structure.
I am for dealing with this now rather than later. BTW for global
multi-file replacement I find jedit quite good.

Since much of this is already done perhaps this is no longer an issue?

Sounds reasonable. The only thing to add is to split the yahoo sample
into maven and ant specific samples.
