What organization do you think would work well?  I've spent the
last few minutes trying to come up with a better structure, and
this is what I have so far:

    CVS/  data-io/      foo     language/  main.h   ui/
    ChangeLog  data-mgmt/    glob.c  lib/       math/
    Makefile   commands/    expressions/  glob.h  main.c     output/

    Entries  Repository  Root

    command.c    command.h   dictionary/  procedures/  xforms/
    command.def  ctrl-flow/  io/          utilities/

    do-if.c  do-ifP.h  loop.c  repeat.c  repeat.h

    apply-dict.c   numeric.c      sysfile-info.c  value-labels.c  weight.c
    formats.c      rename-vars.c  temporary.c     value-labels.h
    mis-val.c      sample.c       title.c         var-labs.c
    modify-vars.c  split-file.c   val-labs.c      vector.c

    data-list.c  file-type.c  inpt-pgm.c  matrix-data.c
    data-list.h  get.c        list.q      print.c

    aggregate.c   correlations.q  descript.c  flip.c         means.q   t-test.q
    autorecode.c  crosstabs.q     examine.q   frequencies.q  oneway.q

    copyleft.c  date.c         file-handle.q  permissions.c  settings.h
    copyleft.h  file-handle.h  include.c      set.q

    compute.c  count.c  recode.c  sel-if.c

    data-in.c   dfm-read.h   format.def  pfm-write.c  sfm-write.c
    data-in.h   dfm-write.c  format.h    pfm-write.h  sfm-write.h
    data-out.c  dfm-write.h  pfm-read.c  sfm-read.c   sfmP.h
    dfm-read.c  format.c     pfm-read.h  sfm-read.h

    case.c  casefile.c  dictionary.c  val.h  vars-atr.c  vfm.h
    case.h  casefile.h  dictionary.h  var.h  vfm.c       vfmP.h

    evaluate.c  expr.def  optimize.c  parse.c  private.h  public.h

    getline.c  lexer.c  q2c.c       subclist.h
    getline.h  lexer.h  subclist.c  vars-prs.c

    algorithm.c  alloc.h        filename.c  hash.h   pool.c  str.h
    algorithm.h  bitvector.h    filename.h  magic.c  pool.h  version.h
    alloc.c      debug-print.h  hash.c      magic.h  str.c

    factor_stats.c  group.c  group_proc.h  levene.h  misc.h     moments.h  
    factor_stats.h  group.h  levene.c      misc.c    moments.c  sort.c     

    ascii.c  devind.c  font.h        html.c   log.h     output.h      som.c  
    charts/  devind.h  groff-font.c  htmlP.h  output.c  postscript.c  som.h  

    barchart.c     cartesian.c  chart.h      piechart.c
    box-whisker.c  chart.c      histogram.c

    cmdline.c  cmdline.h  error.c  error.h

I'm not really happy with this yet, and it's important to get it
right (or close to it) the first time, because CVS does not deal
with moving around files very well.
