I was never clear on the intention myself, since generating from the sample project gives
you an archetype in target, but doesn't do any of the further steps for building, deploying
or releasing the archetype.

I would suggest the following:
- generate a project from the old archetype
- fix it up to how you would expect
- submit it as a patch for the "samples" directory.

To get it release, we should discuss what needs to happen with them on dev@, but the best
thing is probably to build an /archetypes directory, similar to /plugins, and move forward
from there.
