Use a package. I know there is contrib package in w3c.jigsaw, but I think
it is for official Jigsaw contributions under proper CopyLeft license, so
you better use your own. Something like jigsaw.LS would be nice. LS stand
for your initials even better three letters with a middle name if you have
Then you put that package jigsaw.LS anywhere on a classpath. It does not
have to be in Jigsaw directory at all. I, for example, have it in java
subdirectory where I keep all my private and test packages and I have
~/java directory on a classpath.

If you use your own packages, there is no risk as all the jigsaw files
would be under w3c and all yours under jigsaw.LS. No overlapping here. :-}
