For as much as I'm maintaining, all I have to say is said. ;)

If others agree, would you want to work on integrating this?
You can be sure it'd be appreciated! :-)

Uh, I haven't seen any serious proposal for a "one file approach", not
that I'd think that's much good. My "small (first) step" proposal is still
up, I just lack time (got suckered into the 1.5 release process ;).

Asami mentioned some script that he used to reorg the FreeBSD tree, but I
didn't get an answer on my inquiry for that script (yet). 

Then again, this issue is really seperate to the subpackage/etc. thing. :)
