from the users perspective alone, you'd expect directories to match namespaces
and filenames.hpp to match classes (or something that identifies > 1
i.e. boost::mpl::and is in boost/mpl/and.hpp
this would overcrowd some directories, especially boost/*, but since
identifiers in namespace boost are already unique that isn't a problem from
the user's perspective.
it might create all sorts of maintenance issues though, having files from
