Lets not confuse directory names and package names.
As it is now, the subdir tcl80 contains the package tcl-8.0.5,
and tclman80/ contains tclman-8.0.5. So it is as you wish
so far.
A package tcl-8.2.3 in subdir tcl82 doesn't work too well
unfortunately, as it automatically conflicts with tcl-8.0.5
while the purpose of the whole moving around is to allow
coexistence of the tcl80 and tcl82 runtimes.
What now - tcl82-8.2.3?

We'll get the same problem with qt2 btw.
