Well, this is not exactly the same, isn't it...;-) 

But I second your opinion that we should use deep structures. The success of GS 
relies on the existence of the GNUstep environment, not directory structures. 
If we remove the deep structure we assume that GNUstep users mainly use the 
terminal to launch apps. This is IMHO the wrong approach. We should think of 
our vision, our goals (that is the 'perfect' GWorkspace/WM/Fiend ... scenario 
and so forth) when we make decisions, not intermediate states we are in like
