Careful! The directory structure reflects maintenance preference of the 
people involved. Until some time ago, we had PathTools (File::Spec, Cwd, 
...) in there, for example. There's also File::Temp, Getopt stuff, etc. 
Even if you ignore all the tools that are required for building other 
modules, this is REALLY basic stuff.
