I made some suggestions some time ago and started the move with audio and

I also proposed a large clean up of the huge BR2_GRAPHICS menu which is a

I also believe that no packages should be under package directly.

I think we should create a directory skeleton on here.  Get agreement and
make the big move

Should we even go so far that not a single package should live under
directly any more, but all packages under package/<category>/ ?

I think so. And BusyBox works the same way.
