I assume it will show up here tomorrow:

We did that.  Unfortunately, it was quite cumbersome since you cannot
specify the package name (which would have been more sane than the
horrible logic in the tool).  The trick appears to be that you make
sure to specify that the output goes to a directory named gensrc, for
example, gensrc/com/sun/tools/javac/resources/  Then it
will "infer" the correct package name.
