Exposing Generated Web Service Client Files in the NetBeans Projects Window

In Eating Web Services in NetBeans IDE 4.1, I complained about the fact that the client files generated by the NetBeans Web Service Client wizard end up stuck away deep in the Files window. Of course, the extent to which the generated client files are hidden depends on the number of subpackages that you define for them. However, nonetheless, your generated client files are stuck far away from where you would want them -- the Projects window, where you work with the JSP, servlet, or other Java class that uses these client files to interact with the web service.
Today I was told by Milan Kuchtiak about a very cool workaround (which has one very fatal flaw), specifically for the situation described above.
