How to organize sources

It's actually pretty  much a personal preference, as it's not going to
affect your build in any way (unless you wrote a script to automate your
build, and the script expects all packages to be in one certain
directory).  I've been messing with automation, and all my stuff is in
one directory since I'm not actually even going to be manually unpacking
the stuff myself (the script does that when it's needed for the script
running at the time and the packages needed during its execution).

With no walls or fences on the internet, who needs Windows or Gates?
