What is being advocated is that we keep having's in each
separate directory (there's no question that this is desirable for
maintainability), but that automake combines them all together into a
top-level, rather than building's in each

With separate's in each directory, automake should be able to
figure the bar/foo out from the directory paths.  The user shouldn't have
to worry about what the path to the top-level is.
