Yikes, I didn't realize I was still in this discussion!  :)

To be honest, I'm not familiar with <javadoc> under the covers much, nor how
the command-line utility works (although I did dig in to find setUseExternal
to patch XDoclet's codebase with to fix a bug there!).

There is a package Mapper that I created that is available too.  I'm not
sure if that would be of help here, as you'd have to add support for mappers
to <javadoc>, but it converts file paths to dotted package names.  I used it
for <uptodate> checks from test cases to their <junit> XML results (which
are filenames in a flat directory with package name in the filename).  Does
that help this situation any?
