Yes, I know.

Do you mean multiple entries in the same parent folder?
I meant parallel structures, mirroring each other:

e.g. having a real structure

and a localized structure where files are hardlinked:
/boot/appski/editski/Editski -> /boot/apps/editor/Editor
/boot/appski/browski/Browski -> /boot/apps/browser/Browser
/boot/appski/installski/Installski -> /boot/apps/installer/Installer

Apologies to all slavic(?) people :]

Not ideal. Perhaps one set of problems traded for some other,
but it could possibly shelter the user from inconsistency,
letting the platform sort it out.
