I agree that all modules should have their own directory.

As far as the  info file goes, we can have one for each module, starting with:

     DESC: This is the module description to show in admin/modules

This can even be autogenerated for every existing module by running a one
time script to extract that info from the module itself, similar to what Gerhard

Later, we can add:

    AUTHOR: blah
    VERSION: blah
    DEPENDENCY: blat1
    DEPENDENCY: blat2
    DBCREATE: blah.sql


You get the idea.
