One thing I find annoying is having to remember which one a given module is
in. Could we maybe add another that is a symlink directory into all 4?
Maybe "modules"? Then when I'm just trying to find the code for something
and cant remember what the dist name is or I want to see an overview of
everything we include I can look there?

Would that be a step too far?
