Historically, this was required for at least two reasons:

- Package hint file were all named setup.hint, so couldn't co-exist in 
the same directory

- Since hyphen-digit sequences in package names weren't yet forbidden, a 
directory named after the package was used to disambiguate where to 
split the package name and version
