I've never liked the close de-facto connection between the hierarchical
module name space and and the actual source tree. In fact, at times,
in the Yampa build system, I tried very hard to work around that
connection (as Simon might recall, something involving allowing "." in
file names as an alternative to subdirectories, I believe). The proposal
seems like a step in the right direction. Go for it!
