Why is it backwards? because you don't like my choice of tools or methods?

Maybe i use a different IDE you dont like as well, but that doesnt matter.
If you dont trust what i did, just review the differences yourself.

I highly recommend "diff -urN -x .svn -x .caches"

P.S. A big part of the reason i did this was your voiced unhappiness
about the .war stuff not being ready etc. Its mechanical but kind of a
pain, still safe.
