Exactly. Personnaly I am neutral about the directory but I want things
to move on instead of getting stalled. Thomas Hood proposal seems the
most reasonnable compromise so far.

It is a bit a Condorcet vote situation with the ballot

A [ ] /run
B [ ] /etc/run
C [ ] do nothing

Steve has say he would vote ABC, I would probably vote BAC,
but what is important is to me is to defeat the C option.
