Thanks! :-)

Many people in GNUstep seem to like looking at these historical layouts
(I find it fascinating myself, even if I never had a NeXTSTEP), so I
think we should add them, even if we're not actually likely to use them
... so I committed this. :-)


PS: If Sergii can complete his mac one (should we call it 'apple' ?), we 
could add that one as well ?

Do we need other unix layouts or fhs is the only one we want ?

I could of course encode that as a filesystem layout ;-)  Had to play
hard-and-fast with some of the dir naming, but I think a NeXT-esque layout
would look something like this.  Yes, it is a bit ugly and no, I don't
think I'd really use this layout ;-)
