Whoa.  Back when we were working on 3.0, these were supposed to be
shared classes, and now they're plugins?  I remember not moving them
out because I guessed that something like this would happen.

They also might not be able to be dexed after they're compiled into
Java bytecode, like when the namespace for FileUtils was changed.
This was something that caught a few people off guard.  I think we
should keep this change, but that this is actually more about our
process than about moving things around.  We should be able to do
these changes without it taking three hours for someone to clean their
stuff if they had the misfortune of going to a business meeting that
day of the change.
