I just want to reiterate my [unoriginal] suggestion that the
actual directory trees be given neutral names, and be accessed
through symlinks with meaningful names, to prevent re-mirroring
as names change (e.g. from development to stable after the elf
release becomes official, or from debian-1.0 to debian-1.1 as
we find it necessary to change the release numbering).
