I'd vote for the flattened structure. I well remember my introduction to the multilevel structure and I didn't like it. After I learned my way around it, and modified GNUmakefile.postamble to add a "cp $target ." (or whatever), I don't mind it as much. Also Nextstep/Openstep use a flat structure.

Richard recently implemented a flattened structure (without the
cpu/os/library-combo directories) due to several complaints about the
difficulty of finding files in such a deep directory structure.

To-date he hasn't received any feedback about it. The question is, if we
are trying to attract new developers/new users, what whould be the most
useful directory layout for them (deep or flattened)?

Whatever we/I decide will become the default for all GNUstep packages
(although anyone would be free to change it for themselves).
