Oh please. The XEmacs package for AUCTeX that we build and now
distribute OF COURSE has exactly the XEmacs package layout, including
custom-autoloads.el, auto-autoloads.el, _pkg.el and the Texinfo
sources and an auctex.MANIFEST all in the right places.
It is virtually (not just functionally) indistinguishable from
something generated by the XEmacs packagers. So we are not at all
interested in different structures. It would, of course, be possible
to rearrange for producing something in a different layout, but that
is not something we are interested in.
And the AUCTeX you have in your CVS tree is not something that could
be packaged at choice: files are found relatively to each other in the
directory tree. A rearrangement will break this.
