<X11/whatever.h> is actually a bit of a different reason.  There would
be no problem having .h files with the same names here, just like
<time.h> and <sys/time.h>.

Anyway I think we can conclude that all _should_ be fine and dandy, but
I won't believe it until I actually see it.  (I think I'll have to leave
work early today...)

Agreed.  Separate subtrees are nice if you use make install and rm -Rf
as your packaging system, but really just a bit silly when we have dpkg
and rpm.

Would Branden actually consider something to the effects of a 
/usr/X11R6 -> . symlink?
