overrides in effect will be for those of the person running the

In Commons, we've been having someone do the generation, and then
check in the generated build.xml file, so that Commons users who like
Ant can build the packages in the usual way.  In the generated
build.xml file, it would seem that the paths for <get> methods would
still be hard coded (either the default ones or the overrides for the
person who did the generation), wouldn't they?

Also, which version of Maven will include the fixes listed on this issue?
