I respectfully disagree.  I think (1) is the way to go.  This gives us
(Flex SDK team) the freedom to maintain whatever structure we want.  If
some of us want to make it Maven compliant, they should write a tool to
create a Maven-specific directory structure and maintain it either part of
Apache Flex or outside of Apache Flex.

Maven is not the only build management system we want to support.  Lots of
folks use Ant, GradleFx, custom build scripts, etc.  If we favor Maven,
then it is not fair for the other tools.

Breaking existing tools like Flash Builder, IntelliJ just to make Maven
work is not the best idea.  We are at a very delicate point in terms of end
users' confidence and trust.  Lets not break the camel's back.
