Pretty much all the java packages I've dealt with repack the source,
filtering .class and .jar files and whatnot. Now I see though that it
doesn't have README.source at all, I'll add that to git.

Looks like it's from javacc: examples/JavaGrammars/Java1.1.jj
and modified for this project. The original file is under BSD-3-clause.

Not sure, no idea where they were generated from.. I'll see if they are
needed at all.

If it's ok I'll push updates to git and get -2 uploaded soon enough that
should cover all the above. Getting -1 through NEW would still be nice :)
