Honestly spoken, I don't know if this will work.

Of course it could be easy and fast to think about a directory structure 
that will work also for a AOO 5.0 release.

However, I doubt that we will have the time to make the DL logic work 
this way, too.

As I've no idea how close we are from the first public download of AOO 
3.4 I wouldn't do bigger changes now.

The DL logic for 3.4.1 can be the same as for 3.4.0. There shouldn't be 
big changes. For further releases see above.

Juergen is already OK to setup the structure like it was in the old 
project, so that the need changes to the DL logic is minimal.

To setup a new structure that makes maybe more sense can be done later 
for a release after 3.4.x.
