The sub-features and the src/ layout are *totally* independent. We can pick
pieces no matter how they are laid out. [in both cases, it is simply
modifying the set of subdirs in a makefile]

The src/ directory scales better to large numbers of features. APR has 15
separate function subdirs. That crowds the top-level quite a bit.

Want to know what the features are? Look in src/. No need to try and figure
out whether a directory is code or something else. Quick: what is the
images/ directory in APR? How about the lib/ directory? Does lib/ contain
code, or does it contain the output libraries? How about misc/?

Move them to src/ and it is abundantly clear. No question, no hesitation.

APRUTIL has just five subdirs: build, docs, include, src, and test. I will
bet that you can quickly and easily describe what is in each of those five
