Yes, too many hyphens do make it ugly, and in my previous example I
erroneously included periods which I think are forbidden.  OTOH, the
price you pay at first will be helpful later to scripting--e.g., from
something like http://Ubuntu710-Linux-2_6_24-Drivers-Dma a script could,
for example, *easily* deduce that the relevant directory is

What exactly these future scripts might do that is so important we
really cannot say, of course, but why not make them easier to write?

Let's consider another example of the problem:

$ find . -type d -wholename '*/mm'

There's a lot of complexity here that is helped by a decent directory
structure, and I do not see why section names cannot benefit *somehow*
from that structure.

In any case, I should now try to find some time for *working* on KFV.
