Note that this proposal conflicts with some existing libraries (e.g.
tuple, bimap).

The library name is normally (but not always) singular, e.g.
Boost.Tuple, which is IMO more logical than Boost.Tuples. The folder
name equals the library name. The library often contains a class named
as the library, e.g. tuple, and the namespace therefore or for other
reasons is something different, here tuples, so this requirement is
difficult to meet.
