Subject Re: [pattern] Directory structure?

No, this hasn't been debated before.

It was an instinctive move on my part when I started out. I felt that
patterns would arrive, some would turn out well, some not so well. By having
separate directories it would ease any later promotion process.

For an example of how things can get cluttered, look at [collections]. Try
and find the four pattern interfaces in amongst the other classes. ;-)
