Is there no reason why we couldn't have separate source directories, 
rather than having them in the same directory as the class itself? That 
way we could have:

src\org\apache\cache\Cache.java
unit\org\apache\cache\CacheTest.java
spec\org\apache\cache\CacheSpec.java

Plus it makes it a lot easier to build without test code, rather than 
relying on a naming convention. Don't know how easy it would be to 
integrate this into the maven build process, but since I've done it a 
few times with ant then it shouldn't be that difficult.

Alex.
