I think that cleaning up is a good idea, but I think the conversion  
is going to be complicated enough as it is.  So I propose that we  
convert, then cleanup.

"abtractions", "extensions", and "externals" are pretty much  
redundant, so one "extensions" directory would make sense, making it :


But I have to say, yes the CVS is messy, but it works more or less.   
And it would take a lot of work to clean it up.  I'd rather have  
svn's easier branching and merging before a cleaned up repository.   
But if anyone wants to take on the cleanup project, I say go for it.
