I actually *like* lots of directories -- it seems more organized to me.
However, I can see that it'd be a pain if all you want to do is override
ONE ruleset file, and having to create a directory to do it. So, having
*both* is probably a great idea -- lots of files can go into their own
directory, but single files can just live in data.

I, too, like this style (I've used it on Windows), but it has a downside:
having to keep the index numbers unique and sequential. (This can be
overcome, but it's not pretty ;-) Is there a way to get a list of the
names of all the sections in a registry file? If so, then we could do
tech_req = "None"
obsolete_by = "Engineers"
graphic = 24
move_type = "land"
flags = "Settlers", "NonMil"
tech_req = "Seafaring"
I think this would be really nice !
