They use .properties files to convey that information.  Actually I think
the entire point of these 'exploded' package formats was to make raw
method-level diffs pretty... at the cost of making the overall package
format quite ugly/cumbersome.   Every time I've had to look at a repo using
those formats, I'm happy you went the direction you did with package
files.  You prioritized the people using the package files, they continue
to prioritize the tools that manipulate them.
