        Thanks for the reminder, I just closed that PR. :) This change would
cause a lot of uphevel, a lot of source duplication in the cvs
repository, and wouldn't provide any clear benefit, other than making
ls(1) a little more orderly in the modules directory. Things work fine
the way they are, so changing this isn't worth what it would cost.

        Nothing gets done around here unless someone who cares does it...
someone else already explained why doing this in userland would be a
better way to handle it, good luck. :)
