     Here's a pointer to my proposal about this in 2004, and the
     followups I found interesting:
     Any new comments about that proposed structure?

It might be worth re-drafting that proposal, since we've moved on a
bit in the last 12 months anyway. I'm not sure what Jason's plans are
with lib/linreg  --- I'd assumed that lib/linreg was supposed to be a
general purpose linear regression library which could be applied to
any software.  But I note that there are some very PSPP specific
things there now (eg: #include "var.h").

I take it your plan would be to have each directory compiled as a
static library, and linked into the binary at the end?  And what about
header file search paths?  Currently, *every* file in *every*
directory searches *every* directory for it's *.h #includes.  IMHO
this is wrong, and would be cumbersome for such a large number of
directories. So this would need to be thought about.
