By all means.  That's the great thing about working with others ...
instant growth :-)  After all, no one owns the code, and so it's always
available for refactoring and improving.

Works for me, and there's already a classes directory in CVS.  I believe
it was used to house the final jar file (at least that's where it showed
up when I did a make), but it does make more sense to instead use it to
house the intermediate class files instead.

Not being much of an IDE guy, I didn't know about their default ways of
doing things.  Thanks for the info.

No problem, I just got tired of typing 'ant javadoc' all of the time.  

Good comments, and thanks for the help.
