@ancient-stone-50795: this is really the entire idea:
Copy code
In terms of matching existing expectations, it occurs to me that the clearest way to make these "act like generated code" is to pretend that they were codegen'd, and create a synthetic target for them. It would be a bit of a re-architecture of deferred sources, but essentially, have a unpacked_sources target with a lang parameter (similar to thrift_library), and have the UnpackJars task create a synthetic target of the appropriate type paired to the unpacked_sources target.
