In your list, some of the files do use a two-letter name prefix,
but others do not.

lisp/cedet/srecode/el.el does not.  Neither does


Regarding prefixes, the above 2 files are not on the path. To require them, you would need:

(require 'srecode/el)
(require 'semantic/sb)

and internally, their prefixes are related to the parent package, ie: srecode- and semantic-

The files are organized this way because the old file names of some neighboring files where too long in the old scheme, such as "srecode-dictionary.el"
