Steve, creating a tmp dir to create a complicated structure inside a jar 
file is the recommended approach? Is there a better way to do it? If the 
tmp dir is the way to go I suppose it's best not to delete this dir, 
except on a "clean" build right? This would allow for time stamp 
checking so in case nothing changes the jar wouldn't have to be re-jared 
every time?
