Sorry, missed this one.  Yes I am talking about a source code modify and 
yes some tool would have to modify at least  all the  source that 
imports shared classes and copy all the source over  to production/java  
to be built to production/classes and then put into the jars.  This 
would only need to happen once before the final derbyall run and 
checkin.  During normal development  you can point to the classes and 
not be impacted.

I had originally proposed this step just be an alternate build target 
for nightly and release builds, so developers would not be affected at 
all, but Dan brought up the good point that develoepers should be 
building and testing with what we release.
