    BY DEFAULT it searches BOTH the top of TEXMFHOME and the appropriate

As I said before: that would be nice in theory, but as far as I can
tell, it would inflict an unacceptable performance hit for some people
currently using TEXMFHOME.

The only compatible solution I can think of is to invent a new tree that
doesn't require the subdir structure.

In any event, neither of these things would be simple to do, and require
considerable thought.  (If you don't understand why this is so, please
just take my word for it.)  Perhaps for TL'11.

Thanks for the suggestion.
