I started using Drupal back around 4.2 or 4.3, when the installation  
procedures for many modules required that you splatter files all over  
the place.

I am far happier now that almost modules are self-contained (i.e.  
they live in a single directory tree) -- even taking into account the  
security issues.

I don't care if the module tree as a whole moves to a new location,  
but please, let's not return to the dark ages of "put file 'x' here  
and put file 'y' over there."
