It involves basic_func*, *math*, *rand* and *array* files (* are wildcards,
not exclamation markings) files. And of course Makefile too.
And probably some others too. That makes quite a significant portion of that
directory. It is way much easier to branch the whole dir...

Currently it only compiles as non-ZTS, Linux stand-alone executable, and not
much else, definitely not windows, ZTS, and as module. This will remain so
for quite a time, I guess. That means that the main branch will be broken
for those situations for quite a time, and I don't think that's a good idea.
