	Surely that is what Hamburg release engineering did for years :-)

	Ok - so, at least some better data. But this seems to suggest that the
problem is not multiple include-path sub-directories (as was suggested)
but badly structured includes - which is an orthogonal problem - right ?

	At least, I share Tor's view that we should have some real numbers
about the cost of a given thing: multiple include paths, vs. single ones
before doing the re-licensing & then the code re-structuring ;-)
