Yeah, whatever, the layout of directories is more or less random, and has to
suite our needs best. If you hide away the stuff most people work on in deep
subdirs, then it is not developer friendly.

Also, there is a difference between our case and others, what we need direct
access too is the stuff we work on, and the released packages are more needed
to be able to fix them easily than they are in the case of XFS or other such
