It'd be really nice if an inheritor of AbstractCompile could find the root directories of the source sets when compiling.

So if the source contains something like this:


It'd be nice to get a handle on:


The reason this is relevant is because some compilers (e.g. Mirah) are sensitive to the directory structure in order to infer packages.

I have no idea what the best way is to get that information into the compiler, which is why I'm opening this as a Minor Wish instead of submitting a patch. But I want to get it on the radar of the Gradle developers that it'd be nice to pander to directory structure sensitivity for certain compilers.
