Basically it comes down to philosophical differences.  I believe the
Java compilation model is wrong.  I've always thought the directory
structure for source code should be laid out to make things easy for
the programmer.  IMO, related source files should be in the same
directory.  The Sun philosophy is that the layout should benefit the
compiler.  In Sun's opinion, releated files should be littered all
over the place.

The FreeTDS JDBC driver would have source code spread over several
different directories.  Emacs (my primary IDE) can be setup to work
that way, but it defaults to a less bushy arrangement.
