Sorry, I'm afraid I don't understand what you are saying!

Are you saying you don't like having "all blocks created equal" and want
different directories for each block?

Thing is, we've been through that discussion before. Do we separate out
samples from main blocks, stable from unstable, supported from
deprecated? What separations do we do?

In the end, we will need to help users with higher level tools that
organise an increasing number of blocks in a flat hierarchy. Even if we
separate our samples and blocks, we'll soon enough end up with 120
blocks in one directory anyway - especially when creating blocks has
become much easier.
