I understand where you're coming from, but (1) the changes (in directory
structure, namespace and identifier naming) were done in response to
reviewers' requests and not on a whim, and (2) it takes years for a
library's review to be scheduled. We cannot afford to tell library authors
"do please wait another three years because you made changes which were
requested of you during the review."
