I'm wondering if we have any good reason to keep subdirs for binary

single directory for holding the binary packages from the bulk builds?

Categories exist to help judge what a package is.
Why deny this help? Of course, having a decent package installer would
be nice, but until then... "why?"

Because no one manually browses ftp in 21. century.
We have pkg_install and lately pkgin to fulfill this.

At least I think our users deserve this level of comfort.
