That sounds good to me. I presume you will be keeping the same package
names for the rss code?

The examples stuff build approach is deliberately simple (just builds
.class files inside the same dir as the source) to make it easy for
users to then run the code. I don't know whether you'll want something
more sophisticated for the rss stuff. 

Last weekend I sent an email suggesting a "src/extras" directory for
things which are more than "examples" but not core code, and starting
extras off with the rss stuff. Ant has an "extras" jar for example. But
I'm happy with rss being either in "src/examples" or "src/extras"
whichever you prefer.
