I'm not sure that's what Leo suggested.

Having the version in both dir and jar seems a bit too much. The common
practice in many projects ( at least in jakarta ) is to use 
jakarta-SUBPROJECT-version for packages and dirs in the dist. 
Changing that would be quite painfull - and require a lot of work.

Getting the version number in the jars names is not easy either - it
require changing build files, docs, scripts, maybe manifests. But it
can be done, if it is clear that this is indeed an informed choice.

Having one format in the repo and one in the official releases is IMO
the worst choice. A download tool that is flexible and can support both
formats - and eventually a descriptor that maps the type of names - is 
easier and require less work than changing all projects.
