Don't name the intermediate directories (subheirarchies) or modules Aux.
On Windows platforms (at least 2k, almost certainly earlier ones as well
though) aux (or aux.* in general) is a special file name. 
Because of this I can't just extract the files, but will need to
manually rename the directories and edit the source files, and if I
directly refer to anything that used to be in Data.Graph.Inductive.Aux
 my source files will be (slightly) non-portable.
