But if com/alltel/ebusiness/pages already exists, you don't really want to
move _com/_alltell/_ebusiness/_pages to com/alltel/ebusiness/pages, since
that wouldn't actually do what you want. What you want is to get the gen'd
.java/.class files (or maybe just the .class files) into
com/alltel/ebusiness/pages, yes? -- which would mean moving
_com/_alltel/_ebusiness/_pages/*.{java,class} to

Is the prospect of having to do that so daunting that it's worth trying to
come up with some workaround or, as Adam suggested, writing a new mapper?
(The only workarounds I can think of at the moment are pretty twisty, so
you'd probably want to go with a new mapper -- and in which case, you're
on your own :)
