I do not believe your argument is strong enough to warrant serious
consideration.  Renaming a directory would be quite painful and
sufficent cause should have be shown to justify the effort.  If you
believe there is such cause, please start a discussion on -devel
so that your proposal can be openly discussed.


me again:
I would like to start moving libraries to lib if at all possible. this is
more in line with standard lib naming schemes. to maintain backword
compatiblity during this time, we can make libraries be a symlink to lib
until we can remove it. if there is no disagreement with this, I can start
with this on my own private tree.
