I looked at that patch, and although it's moving in
the right direction, it's not yet ready for prime-time.
One can easily defeat its checking with a tarball that
omits the second top-level directory (but contains
the second directory's subsidiary files).  Or one could
simply make the top level "." or "..".

A lesser thing: it's missing a NEWS entry.

Although checking like this might be a good idea, it
needn't hold up the next release.
