I really don't think this process has to this contentious. I don't
believe the changes I am asking for are unreasonable.

Directory structure might seem like a trivial problem, however it is
important to get the user interface right.

Since Michael doesn't have the bandwidth to make the suggested changes,
I working on applying his patches. There are some conflicts with the

selftests: Introduce minimal shared logic for running tests
selftests: Add install target

patches and timer patches. I can fix the directory hierarchy after
I get these two patches into next.
