Without actually looking at what it will take to make VMMaker
happy, my initial reaction would be that you should go ahead
and establish the new directory structure, and we can figure
out how to make VMMaker happy later. Does that work from your
point of view? I am assuming that you have ways to do the
builds yourself even with an unhappy VMMaker.

I would certainly want to try to do the VMMaker fixes in the
same time frame, or at least by the time Squeak 4.1 is released,
but even if that did not happen I would not expect it to be
a show stopper.

I'm willing to work on the "make VMMaker happy" part.
