I highly disagree that this should be inherited.

The concept of a "directory full of module descriptions" is only a
convention. I do not believe we need to formalize that, or add in entire new
concepts of property inheritance to support anything more than that.

For example, it might be really neat to drop a special developer's module
file into tools/dev/. Regular Joe off the street just grabs the /trunk or
whatever and is done.
