Maybe it could be organized in a different way that is flatter. The 
question is why?

The way our intranet wiki is organized is also quite "deep":

      :specific project
            :method description

We'd be totally lost without hierarchical breadcrumbs. But it works 
perfectly with them. The only painful bit is setting up a new class, 
e.g, because you have to prepend the links to the methods with the 
namespace of that class, which is a bit tedious if there are many 
methods. Alternatively, we could place the index in the same 
namespace, but that destroys the breadcrumbs.
