    This might have been a good reason back when term/ was the only
    subdirectory in lisp/ (Emacs 19.x).  But nowadays we have 21
    subdirectories besides term/ (and soon we will have 5 more).  Does a
    single directory really make a difference?

It makes some difference; why make even a small slowdown
for all the users just for a small simplification?

Perhaps it would be useful to design some other way to
speed up the search for files.
