I agree that this change is not a good idea at this point, but as for
third-party stuff needing the directory structure exactly the way it is, I
would say that the third-party install is broken.  For DSO builds, apxs
does a good job.  And for static builds, as long as src/include is updated
correctly, there shouldn't be a problem either.  As long as src/include
and src/os/* stay where they are and point to other files in the correct
places, just about anything else can be moved around.
