That's what I meant, but "in" versus "under" is not a clear way to make
that distinction, sorry.  It could also make sense to say something
under a directory is also in it.  I think English prepositions are
pretty ambiguously used and abused.  I'm just brainwashed with it and
used to having to always "read between the lines".

Yeah.  It's the only language I know, and I hate it.
