Unfortunately, I really have to go to sleep now. :-( And I have to
focus my mind on other things for a few days, too.
Please feel free to make this change on your own; it's obviously
correct as far as I'm concerned.
And likewise to anyone else who wants to improve the top level;
now that autoconfiscation, and configure-on-demand, have actually
happened, I just don't need the tight control on the top level files
which I was exercising before. (At least until I start on the new build
scheme, which won't be for a while.)
Part of the motivation for autoconfiscating was to make the top level less
of a "secret region" which only the "initiated" could hack on. I hope
I've accomplished that.
