Yes.  (This feature has now been there for months...)

There's a flag "deploy.canonical.flag" that you can specify on the 
command line or more commonly, put in the


file which has the output go into the directory that you noted above 

I made the mistake of not defaulting that flag to true, which I will fix 
now.  If you don't like it, turn it off. :)

Yes, we know.  That's why we moved them there.

But the "canonical deploy directory" feature of the DRLVM build made 
everything work.

Again, the problem was that the flag wasn't set to do this by default, 
but it will going forward.

We were planning to get them out of DRLVM , but your idea is a good one. 
  I'd like to see more things move to common_resources, if that makes sense.
