This is I thought and what I have in my local copy (took me two hours to find 
out how to get the build system to do this). Since my local copy is in a 
semi-broken state I haven't asked for the rename, which should be done on the 
server so as not to lose history.

Ok, I will leave the layout broken as it is (unless it is something really 
trivial to fix. Drop me a line when you are done with the new layout.

I will look at it, thanks.

Actually, I started by wanting to fix bug 52703 (info:ls doesn't work) and 
though I haven't gotten there, it is my main goal.
