There's still things like master as well.  I'd really like to move
that elsewhere so the name 'master' doesn't clash with the git branch
name 'master'.  It makes a few commands more annoying to run.

src/master or something would be better.

don't want to embark on something like this until we've merged
everything we're planning to merge, and everyone has advance notice
of the plan.  Even the automake changes so far have been quite
