My primary concern is that our distributions should unpack into a 
directory.  If we can agree on that, I'm fairly easy on what that 
directory is called.  "apache-uima" is a fine name.  I would prefer to 
have the version number in there, but if there are overriding concerns, 
that's not a big deal.
