Wait, so there's going to be a 'trunk/src/' directory now? And it's
not going to contain Subversion source code? If I'm misunderstanding,
please let me know... if not, it sounds like it'll be a bit confusing
for people trying to figure out what's where in our tree.

Can these files do includes of other files? If so, another solution
might be to put one file at the top of trunk/, with just an include
line that pulls in other files at less egregious locations.

I like the general plan, it's just that directory name "src" that's
gnawing at me... :-)
