The duplication of the name probabably was meant to prevent escaping the

IIRC, that name duplication was in the spirit of Mac OS X bundles: you have a directory that defines the module, and inside you have the binary and possibly any associated data files that may be required.

Have you asked the original author for his rationale? (I presume that was ad@).
