I disagree with that.  Usually, a source distribution should be the
entire distribution tree before an ant/make/maven, and the binary
distribution should overlay on top of that into new subdirs
of the main tree.  Some of the duplicate files get replaced that way,
but it is better for the user to have one tree.

I don't think there is a generally accepted Apache way of separating
these things, since the really important part is the source tree.
I think it is important to make it clear that the binaries are just
a convenience layer and not a separate distribution (even if they are
distributed separately).
