I think releasing binaries and source code in separate files is ok, as
long as all distributed artifacts contain the NOTICE and LICENSE file.

However, including the source code in the binary distribution is
useful for debugging, as some using that is sure to have the correct
version of the source code.

If we want the binary distribution to be very small, we could also
include the compiled jar in the source code distribution files, so as
to provide that "source and binary in sync" file.

Current, NOTICE.txt says

  This product includes software developed by Andy Clark.

Could we specify what this software is? It makes it easier to keep
track of things.

Also, I think NOTICE and LICENSE (without .txt extension) are the
preferred filenames, can someone confirm?
