Well, I have to confess that I tend to like writing one function per
file, and I also tend to use functions to organize my thoughts.  So a
simple program like at could have a dozen .[ch] files.

Also, I imagine that we'll have a 'libcron' directory for common functions.

Yeah, I do. =) The problem with moving things in the repository, is
that you lose the ability to get history by date accurately (the files
will be alwyas in their new location)

I think just another directory.  It'll be told to only build when the
--build system is set to "gnu*"

Abandon the search for truth; settle for a good fantasy.
