I wasn't overly happy about using jigdo-area, but couldn't think of
anything more appropriate.

The reason not to call it simply "jigdo" is that the jigdo-area contains
one or more versioned directories, each of which contains a jigdo and a
snapshot directory, so having jigdo appear at two levels in the
hierarchy seemed likely to give rise to confusion.

I'm open to suggestions for a better name for where we keep
jigdo/snapshot combinations, but I don't think "jigdo" is it.

Cheers, Phil.
