That's kind of what I was envisioning originally - if the code is
merged (and it seems good to do so) 80% of the users will use it
for file system directories, and naming it anything too different from
"DirectoryGenerator" will obfuscate it's function.  But some of the
proposed TraversableSources don't fit with "Directory" at all (at least
XMLDB doesn't), so I thought "hierarchy" type names a good compromise.

Wild proposal: merge all code into one class, named something very
clear (like TraversableSourceHierarchyGenerator) and subclass that
with DirectoryGenerator (or something very like it) and have that
subclass override nothing:

public class DirectoryGenerator extends 
TraversableSourceHierarchyGenerator {

  * Identical to superclass - class only for name/function clarity.


too crazy?
