The "fold it all into a bowl and stir" model of development. This should
introduce no more or less bloat than keeping the modules in a separate
library. But I can't see how it makes working with the modules easier.

I'm introducing a new vendor library into some old code moved from VSS to
SVN. That library is going into its own directory, not getting dumped into
the project directory as has been done by other developers in the past.
It's a separate subsystem, and it should be organized that way.

Dumping all your modules into one directory is like dumping all your source
into one big text file. Those with primitive single-file editors may like
the latter, but I find huge source files clumsy, and I find huge
directories full of unrelated modules equally clumsy.
