I'm all for it.  I think the organization is a bit cleaner.
Fortunately, I think it shouldn't have any harmful effect for the users
if it's implemented all at once.

Let me know what I can do to help (so as not to accidentally duplicate
effort or introduce conflicts).  Sorry, I know I haven't been as active
lately; work has been occupying most of my time and energy lately.

We should also consider putting together a snapshot release soon.  I
used to do it quarterly and there were people who reported using it.


Genomes are more important. But it would be good if you can test the
snapshot generating script, I tried but didn't get results I expected, not
sure I was doing right thing.

I will move forward on the other changes and ask you opinion of them
before commitment.

"Fortunately, I think it shouldn't have any harmful effect for the users

No LONG TERM harmful effect...

I have decided to expedite. I'm using too much time. I, like  Donald Trump,
am supremely confident, I'll skip caution, and just do it and we can fiddle with
it after. Need to write a NEWS item to warn the user.
will need to do

configure --prefix=WHATEVERITWAS

questions: Use "pkg/ directory?" Yes
(Requires changed line in every gsrc Makefile)
Actually merge the biosrc packages? Yes
They are all libre software.
Maybe someone who came for GNUjump will try something new like blast,
and vice versa.
Move packages around directories in pkg/ ? Yes
Attempt logic and nonredundancy, high virtues.

If I don't do it all soon, while the whirlwind is happening, then I'd put it on TODO
list which is NEVER DO list.
