Correct me if I am wrong, but it appears that although the directory
structure needs to be duplicated, at the leaf a symlink can remove
duplication of the file data. Either the leaf in java-repository points to
the avalon copy, or the avalon copy points to the jar in java-repository. I
don't particularly care which. I don't recall if you had requirement.
