To me, 'Cross' would be THE most important directory that VMMakerTool 
would generate files to. Simply because these files would be easily 
prone to Slang and would be less handwritten than platform-dependent 
files. My mind can't understand why the author purposely left 'Cross' 
off the list.  I'm sure there is a very good reason that is going right 
over my head.
