Does it just need to go *in* the file?  The files in the archetype are
essentially velocity templates, so ${package} should work. (For
example, [1].)

But I also remember this problem:  http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/ARCHETYPE-65

The old Archetype plugin couldn't arrange non-java resources into the
package structure along with the Java sources. Apparently it's fixed
in the new one-- we probably need to change from mvn archetype:create
to archetype:generate or something.

Looking closer... the docs only explain how to use the _starter_
archetype, not the blank one.  So if the starter archetype is working,
let's release that so we can finally point users to a stable released
archetype.
