Everything can be done in numerous ways.

The directory structure is easy to understand, it is what we have 
discussed at the list for quite a while, it is what Reinhard actually 
have implemented and above all it moves us forward.

There should of course be a metadata file for the block as well and 
documentation generated from that. But AFAIK no one have started to work 
on any such documentation functinonallity. So for the moment I think we 
should focus on the *important* question:

Which blocks do we support?
