this sounds nice.  A patch would be welcome, supposing that you are
willing to sign the paperwork so that we can accept it.

I'm not sure whether it should be an "enable" option.  Perhaps

And yes, your reasoning against pkg*dir variables seems to be valid,
at least in cases when your layout option is used.

Thank you for this idea!
