[IDV #DHW-747712]: how to include favorites directories in Plugin creator?

> Hello IDVers.
> I'm working on a new release of my plugin.
> I want to include datasources/ and displaytemplates/, but these are not .xml 
> files like the other parts, they are directories full of .xidv files.
> I can drill down and include these favorites .xidv files one by one, using 
> the Plugin Creator.
> But I want a way to include the whole folder tree.
> I tried this command line approach to include them:
> jar cvf plugin.jar *xml *rbi d*
> All the datasources and displaytemplates files went into the plugin.jar, I 
> verified.
> When I launch the IDV with that .jar as my plugin, it failed to show these 
> favorites in the Quicklinks menu.
> The colortables.xml and all the other plugin parts appeared normally, but not 
> the datasources or displaytemplates.
> Any help appreciated. Screen shot below of plugin creator session.
> No apparent way to include those folders.
> Thanks,
> Brian

       At least the displaytemplates need to be selected one by one, otherwise, 
the IDV doesn't know how to categorized these bundles.
